What better way to help accomplish our mission than to write a guides that speak directly to the needs of classroom teachers looking to implement technology effectively? It's imperative we support educators with the resources necessary to accomplish this.
Portland, Oregon (PRWEB) September 24, 2014
With investments in instructional materials, textbooks, and technology by K-12 schools in the United States topping $13 billion annually, educators are seeking high-quality professional development resources to ensure its use leads to an improvement in student achievement. Clarity Innovations wrote this guide to help address this need.
Written by Peggy Grant and Dale Basye of Clarity Innovations, the guide describes in actionable detail how to plan and implement “one-to-one” learning, where each student uses a device in the classroom, to inform and enhance their individual learning in ways not possible without technology. The guide addresses the needs of all learners — from gifted students to those challenged by learning disabilities and gives school leaders a step-by-step action plan for their school. An accompanying workshop facilitation guide and teacher handbook is also available to download free of charge on the K-12 Blueprint website: http://www.k12blueprint.com/personalized-learning-guide.
“What better way to help accomplish our mission than to write a guide that speaks directly to the needs of the classroom teacher looking to implement technology effectively?
