SALT LAKE CITY (PRWEB) May 30, 2013
School Improvement Network, the leader in educator effectiveness resources, today announced an exclusive opportunity for educators to preview the Educator Effectiveness System, a K-12 solution that has spurred school turnaround, student achievement and educator effectiveness in schools across North America.
“To maximize educator effectiveness and impact on students, educators must have systemic support that incorporates evaluations and observations with personalized professional learning and Common Core implementation,” said Chet Linton, CEO and president of School Improvement Network. “The Educator Effectiveness System is the only system with robust support for every phase of the teaching experience, with resources for everything from building a lesson plan to interventions with students.”
The Educator Effectiveness System is a comprehensive solution that drives professional learning. It combines personalized professional learning, teacher observations and evaluations, and support and resources for Common Core implementation—helping all educators grow, and increase student achievement.
The Educator Effectiveness System includes the following products:
- PD 360, the largest on-demand library of training videos for educators in the world. PD 360 provides essential support tools and resources that help educators understand and apply the classroom strategies and practices outlined in the videos. PD 360 also contains an online professional learning community of nearly 1,000,000 verified educators.
- Observation 360, a classroom observation platform that allows administrators to conduct observations and link personalized professional learning to those observations.
- Common Core 360, a training tool that helps every teacher in a school or district implement the Common Core Standards. Common Core 360 contains an ever-growing library of videos of master educators implementing almost every standard in the Core.
- LumiBook, an e-reading platform that enables real-time author updates, community participation, and rich content. LumiBook surpasses the static information of any other e-reading experience by connecting readers to each other and to the author—making it possible for all to have conversations around the text.
Independent research shows that districts and schools that use the tools in the Educator Effectiveness System produce better teachers and, as a result, experience dramatic increases in student achievement, driving up student test scores by as much as 30 percent in a single year.
