Austin, TX (PRWEB) April 28, 2014
Reclaim Your Classroom (http://www.reclaimyourclassroom.com), a professional development course created by education analytics provider Eduvant, has been certified by the Texas Education Agency for continuing professional education credits. The course helps educators better understand students and personalize instruction by teaching them to analyze classroom data they already collect. Reclaim Your Classroom is free and fully online; lessons are delivered daily via email for three weeks.
During his tenure as Director of Knowledge Management at the San Francisco Unified School District, Eduvant founder and CEO Ben Glazer recognized that student data was abundant but squandered. “Teacher prep programs across the U.S. fail to address data analysis as an integral instructional asset. The 2012 report, ‘What Teacher Preparation Programs Teach About K-12 Assessment,’ published by the National Council on Teacher Quality, reinforced what I saw in SFUSD and others—that teachers do not receive fundamental training on data analysis,” said Mr. Glazer. “We developed Reclaim Your Classroom to help educators put data to work for them using freely available spreadsheet software.”
The course was developed to benefit teachers and instructional leaders who are implementing state standards, like the Texas Essential Knowledge Skills and Common Core State Standards; formative assessments; exit tickets; Response to Intervention (RTI); blended learning models; or Results-Oriented Cycle of Improvement (ROCI), kaizen, or other continuous improvement methodologies.
