In today’s world, there isn’t much technology can’t do. It can help you stay connected to family and friends, keep you on track to achieving your fitness goals, and can even adjust your thermostat while you’re away from home.
And now, with myTeachstone, it can promote positive child-outcomes through facilitating on-going, meaningful, and continuous improvement efforts.
myTeachstone is more than just a technology platform to facilitate improvement. It’s research-based and provides the tools, functionality, and systematic approach to focus, measure, and improve teacher-child interactions— -- a key factor proven to drive children’s academic and life-long success
Research emphasizes six key principles in effectively supporting teacher growth. myTeachstone was built on this research and provides key functionality to easily bring the six proven principles into daily practice. With a research-based platform, you can have full confidence that the practices and improvement efforts are driving real outcomes.
Effective growth happens when teachers have the opportunity to be observed, to receive ongoing coaching, to access meaningful learning experiences, and to engage with other educators. myTeachstone not only streamlines these activities into one platform, but works to ensure they’re all connected. And, with access to research-based resources, and functionality that supports building professional learning communities, you can engage teachers in ways we know drive positive outcomes.
Improvement and change happen over time. myTeachstone facilitates a systematic approach to improvement and can streamline your CLASS® implementation. With the functionality to not only collect informal and formal observation data but to also tie that data to recommended professional development and learning experiences and to have the tools to facilitate consistent, and meaningful coaching opportunities, it drives ongoing improvement.
Perhaps your school is already fully in person or using hybrid instruction. Or maybe you, like nearly half of the participants in our recent webinar Three Keys to Building a Blueprint for Reopening, are still completely virtual and looking ahead to when staff and students can be together again.
Since 2018, over 10,000 educators and counting have enrolled in a CDA with CLASS® program. That’s a milestone in and of itself. But when you zoom out, it means that tens of thousands of children are now cared for by these professionals. And, when you think of the number of meaningful, high-quality interactions that happen each and every day? It’s not unreasonable to think that there are a hundred thousand or more brain-building moments that happen daily because learners have enrolled in a CDA with CLASS program.
The 2021 InterAct CLASS Summit brought together incredible speakers and practitioners from across the globe. It energized us, emboldened us, and excited us about new opportunities - like myCoach Connect.
myCoach Connect, developed in partnership with Torsh Inc., will transform how you view, receive, and deliver practice-based coaching to teachers in your program. It brings together innovative technology from Torsh with Teachstone’s staff of expert, certified CLASS® coaches to drive program improvement, classroom quality, and student outcomes.
