NWEA recently had the opportunity to co-host a webinar with Dreambox Learning. The theme was, "Using Student Learning Data to Foster a Growth Culture". (Click on the link to view the on-demand webinar.)
Effective data-driven instruction isn’t just about accumulating data. To move educators and learners forward in their achievement, administrators are building a culture of data-driven practices that enable them to measure growth and continuously improve their results.
This edWebinar is presented by Amy Trees Dodson, M.Ed., Director of Instruction, Cisco Independent School District, TX; David Woods, Director of Curriculum and Reporting, DreamBox Learning; and Robyn Sturgeon, Professional Learning Consultant, NWEA.
An additional resource around this topic is eSchoolNews' article, "Data Driven Learning, Not Instruction, is the Future of Education". They provide six steps for creating a successful data-oriented learning system.
