SALT LAKE CITY (PRWEB) January 23, 2014
School Improvement Network, the leader in educator effectiveness resources, today announced a new video series of research-proven classroom management techniques to increase student learning and engagement. The segments highlight techniques that include building consistent classroom management frameworks, engaging instruction by increasing rigor, and redirecting students using verbal cues and proximity.
“Effective classroom management is essential for creating an environment where students are ready to learn and able to work towards mastery of the skills they need to be ready for college or a meaningful career when they graduate from high school,” said Chet D. Linton, CEO and president of School Improvement Network. “After traveling thousands of miles and visiting hundreds of classrooms, we have captured some of these research-proven classroom management techniques on camera as demonstrated by master educators, and made them available to all educators in a way that can scale to impact every educator and therefore every student.”
All 19 of the new classroom management techniques are available to educators in PD 360—the most widely used online professional development solution in the US. PD 360 contains the largest library of expert-produced training videos, powerful support tools and resources, and an online professional learning community of nearly one million educators.
Three of the classroom management techniques are available to educators in an exclusive view to help transition back to school in the new year and increase student learning.
