SALT LAKE CITY (PRWEB) January 17, 2013
A recently released eSchool news article shows how School Improvement Network’s Observation 360 stacks up against other teacher observation products by making observations professional growing experiences that increase teacher effectiveness.
“If done correctly, teacher observations can be extremely helpful in a teacher’s professional development and growth,” said School Improvement Network CEO and President Chet Linton. “To do this, observations must help teachers identify what they’re doing well, ways they can do better, and connect them with the resources and mentoring to improve in those ways. They need to see examples and they need guidance. Observation 360 makes those connections between teachers, administrators and professional development resources to make every observation a step towards more effective teaching.”
School Improvement Network’s Observation 360 lets educators track and manage their school or district’s teacher observation forms, data, notes and professional development assignments in a single, online platform. Educators can build a customized observation template, or use one imbedded in Observation 360 built by experts, and give their teachers immediate feedback paired with prescriptive professional development to foster growth and development.
