SALT LAKE CITY (PRWEB) April 18, 2013
School Improvement Network, the leader in educator effectiveness resources, today announces that EdSync, their online community of nearly one million educators, has been chosen as a finalist in the 2013 EdTech Digest Awards.
“We are very pleased to have been named finalists in the 2013 EdTech Digest Awards for EdSync,” said Chet Linton, CEO and president of School Improvement Network. “Hundreds of truly effective educators are currently teaching in classrooms across the nation, but only the educators immediately surrounding them get the benefit of seeing how they teach, asking them questions and sharing resources with them.
“EdSync connects educators in every state and district to collaborate on the best strategies for helping students succeed, overcoming the natural physical barrier that has kept some of the nation’s best educators from impacting their peers and improving education for hundreds of thousands of students.”
A vital part of the Educator Effectiveness System, EdSync is an online community of over 900,000 educators in all 50 states. Collectively, they represent all levels of education from teacher’s aides to superintendents in urban, rural and suburban schools and districts. The community allows educators to collaborate in real time about how to drive student achievement and personalize learning for students. EdSync also allows educators to share resources like lesson plans and teaching materials.
