Leveraging Professional Development and Data to Transform Math Instruction
Monday, October 26, 2015 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT
Presented by Rafranz Davis, Executive Director of Professional and Digital Learning for Lufkin ISD
Sponsored by DreamBox Learning
More and more schools are incorporating blended learning models in their math classrooms, and professional development is helping to ease that transition. In this recorded webinar, hear from Rafranz Davis, Executive Director of Professional and Digital Learning for Lufkin ISD, on how you can create a self-driven and growth-centered professional development model that allows your teachers to not only be innovative in their math instruction, but also become the architects of their own learning experience – thus translating this style of learning into their classroom practice.
Topics we covered include:
- Creating a sustainable personalized professional development plan
- Using quantitative and qualitative data to inform math instruction
- Supporting math teachers digitally and effectively
- Common challenges around establishing data-driven practice
Watch Rafranz in a recorded webinar to learn how to leverage professional development and data to transform math instruction for your students. Rafranz also fielded questions after her presentation. School administrators, tech directors, and curriculum directors/coaches all will benefit from this webinar.
