ISTE Coaching Standard & Indicator 4c: Evaluate results of professional learning programs to determine the effectiveness on deepening teacher content knowledge, improving teacher pedagogical skills and/or increasing student learning.
My colleagues and I are using the results of the district database survey to inform our professional learning for next school year. There are many subscription databases that are getting very few hits each year. Or if they are being used, it’s for specific 1x units taught. Our goal is to inform the instructors of the helpful resources. More importantly, we need to look at the teachers’ learning outcomes and help teachers integrate all available resources with good instruction. With our adoption of Canvas as our secondary grade level learning management system, we see easier access to databases if connected in with Canvas.
