Feedback form is now closed.
The training will start by defining success using a digital discussion board. Building on those responses we will introduce the concepts of mastery-based learning and how they are utilized at an online and a traditional school. While technology is not the driving force, it is instrumental in the evaluation of data to drive student need-based instruction. This session allows teachers to view data and determine effective instruction based on that data without adding additional work to their already extensive day. Attendees will be asked to evaluate a presented case of data and determine how they would incorporate instruction into their day based on data. The focus will be on small amounts of technology used regularly and consistently to incorporate data-driven instruction in the classroom. Choose 3 or so technology-based instruments that will encourage support and growth in students. Technology should be used to integrate small group instruction and progress monitor students across grade levels. During this section, a variety of tools and strategies will be reviewed, as well as a discussion on how to use technology to allow students multiple ways to demonstrate mastery of a concept.

  • Diversity This particular session focuses on diversity, equity, and inclusion. Students who score a failing grade (below 69%) are allowed to make corrections to activities and assignments based on individual needs. While we understand that most, if not all districts, consider a failing grade to be below 59%, we believe that success is measured by mastery. As a result, an 80% threshold is used for our instruction while we consider those who score between 60% - 79% are in need of additional support. This allows us to identify and target specific populations based on student needs. We are able to apply specific approaches and strategies based on grade range. No student receives less than 50% on an activity/assessment and specific targeted instruction and interventions are provided to facilitate learning in students. Inherent in these strategies is a belief that not all students will be able to express mastery in the same manner. Our approach encourages students to demonstrate mastery of a given topic in the manner that works best for them. Ultimately, the goal is for students to earn both a passing grade and leave with the confidence that they have mastered the material.
