    DURATION: 60 min.

    Data, data, data.  It’s all the rage these days.  You have tons of excel files, and you recently learned how to make a pivot table (!!!), but how do you actually use the numbers and information you spend so much time collecting and manipulating?  Is there a way to use data to empower coaches and teachers, to help them assess needs, and even find resources to meet these needs?  Can data move us away from factory-like, top-down learning experiences for teachers?  

    In this webinar, you’ll learn how to leverage your data to put coaches and teachers in the driver’s seat as they select and implement professional development to truly change teaching practice.
