Salt Lake City (PRWEB) April 17, 2014 -- School Improvement Network, the leader in educator effectiveness resources, today announced an exclusive exhibit at the National Catholic Education Association Convention & Expo 2014 featuring the Educator Effectiveness System, an end-to-end professional learning solution that offers personalized professional development, complete support for core standards implementation, effective observation and evaluation tools, and more.
“For educators to become as effective as possible, they must have support in everything from lesson plans to observations,” said Chet D. Linton, CEO and president of School Improvement Network. “The Educator Effectiveness System is designed to support leaders and teachers in helping hone their practices in the classroom, differentiate learning, and better engage students so they can help every student master the 21st century skills they need to succeed in college or a career.”
The Educator Effectiveness System is powered by a web-based, on-demand platform that delivers professional learning resources to any educator, anytime, anywhere. It’s expansive enough to cover every situation educators face, yet flexible enough to be customized to individual needs.
The Educator Effectiveness System includes the following resources:
• PD 360 – the most widely used online, subscription-based professional development solution in the US. PD 360 offers a library of more than 3,500 expert-produced training videos, powerful support tools and resources, and an online professional learning community of more than one million educators.
• Common Core 360 – a resource that walks educators through every step of Common Core implementation, with standard-specific video instruction, downloadable lesson plans, crosswalking tools, a learning progressions guide, a roadmap to the standards, and more.
• Observation 360 – a tool to turn the observation and evaluation process into a meaningful educator growth experience. Observation 360 offers administrators every tool they need to conduct effective observations and evaluations, create personalized professional learning plans, and track results.
• LumiBook – an e-reading platform that surpasses the static information of any other reading experience. It enables real-time author updates, collaborative conversations between readers and authors, and a rich content experience that is enhanced by all the resources available on the web.
