In the midst of a deadly pandemic and a Presidential election, both of which are generating conflicting claims that may or may not be based on real data, teaching students to analyze the sources and presentation of online information has never been more important or timely.
Join Texthelpers Joni Degner and Mark Schwartz to learn more about how you can use data to inform and transform your writing instruction.
In this edWebinar, the last in a four-part infographic series, we will examine just how infographics can be used in the classroom.
Join this edWebinar, the third in a four-part infographic series, where we will take a step back to look at information and data to determine how we can best understand where it comes from.
This edWebinar will show educators how to identify components of infographics, locating and using data, images and design elements, and resources to explore.
Discussing and developing equity strategies can lead to significant improvements in student performance, and as Dr. Tyrone Howard of UCLA explained during a recent edWebinar sponsored International Center for Leadership in Education, starting the process by looking at data on both students and teachers is a crucial first step toward mutual understanding and effective solutions.
Administrators selecting educational technology programs for their schools or districts face big decisions due to the time and money at stake, so having accurate and relevant information about the programs’ impact on student performance elsewhere should be a critical part of the decision-making process. During a recent edWebinar sponsored by MIND Research Institute, Andrew Coulson, Chief Data Science Officer at MIND Research Institute, and Brian LeTendre, Director of Content and Communications, explained a process for finding data that will help administrators make the best choices for their student population, and in doing so “raise expectations about the availability of information” during program evaluations.
For leaders and teachers, discussing data gives everyone a common understanding of where their students are and a clear plan of action
Join this edWebinar to learn replicable strategies for generating, collecting, analyzing, synthesizing, and sharing student learning evidence resulting from inquiry instruction.
At first, educators could count the number of edtech programs in their school on one hand—and the number of users wasn’t too much more. Later, schools used spreadsheets and written reports to determine usage, and developers had to wait months, possibly years to get and analyze efficacy data. Now, when usage data is available on a daily basis, developers and educators have a shared interest in that information. During their edWebinar, “Edtech Usage Data: Key to Planning Efficacy Research,” Dr. Denis Newman, Co-founder of Evidentally, Inc., and Kylene Shen, VP of Marketing at Evidentally, Inc., explained why usage data studies are beneficial to edtech companies and schools as well as what types of additional studies can provide relevant insights.
