Live, online coaching is becoming an important part of professional development for educators and school leaders.
New York, NY (PRWEB) November 14, 2012
Truenorthlogic, the leading provider of comprehensive human capital management systems for K-12 education agencies selected MyLivePD™ Online Coaching Service from Tutor.com, the highest-rated live tutoring and coaching services company, to integrate with their Coaching and Mentoring system. The addition of live connections to experienced instructional coaches will enhance Truenorthlogic’s ability to help schools support and retain highly effective educators.
MyLivePD launched last year and was implemented in several school districts as part of a pilot program funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The service is the first professional development support tool that connects teachers to experienced instructional math coaches online for live help with the transition to the Common Core, planning, pedagogy, classroom management and more. MyLivePD offers teachers timely, relevant, and practical support that is used to impact student achievement. Eighty-five% of teachers report they use knowledge from their MyLivePD sessions within one week in their classrooms.
Truenorthlogic provides powerful tools for setting up, managing and monitoring educator mentoring programs and relationships. Coaching and mentoring programs are streamlined with the ability to record and track mentor/mentee hours, allowing more time on communications and less time on paperwork. Mentors have easy access to suggesting learning activities, such as MyLivePD, through a single sign-on. With MyLivePD educators will have the choice to connect to a live coach for a support session during or after school. School leaders have visibility of the topics and standards mentors and educators are discussing, along with data on educators’ goals aligned to professional development, which assists in program improvement and development.
“Live, online coaching is becoming an important part of professional development for educators and school leaders,” said George Cigale, founder and CEO of Tutor.com. “We are excited to work with leaders in the professional development field such as Truenorthlogic to impact teacher effectiveness and student achievement.”
