WASHINGTON, Jan. 26, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- On Thursday, February 18, 2016, from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. ET, the International Association for K-12 Online Learning (iNACOL) is hosting a Teacher Talk Webinar. Presenter Sara Allan, Deputy Director of the College Ready Team at The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, will share findings on using education technology to improve classroom instruction and personalize learning for every student.
How can we ensure the use of digital tools in the classroom is supporting teachers and improving instruction? Recently, The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation released Teachers Know Best: Making Data Work for Students and Teachers, a summary of findings to encourage K-12 innovation by helping educators, school leaders and product developers better understand teacher perspectives surrounding the use of digital instructional tools in the classroom.
In this webinar, Sara Allan will share the Foundation's efforts and highlight the work of key partners to illuminate how education technology can support teachers in a variety of ways to adapt instruction to student needs, open up new possibilities for project-based learning, and strengthen communication between students, teachers and parents.
Susan Patrick, President and CEO of iNACOL, said, "By leveraging the use of technology in the classroom, teachers can shift their instructional models and personalize learning for every student. With powerful digital tools at their fingertips, teachers can utilize data to know exactly where each student is on his or her learning continuum and tailor instruction to each student in ways never before possible. By better understanding how teachers are using data in the classroom and illuminating ways the usage of these tools can be improved, we can advance powerful, personalized learning experiences and prepare each student for success in college and career."
