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.
Teachstone, developer of the Classroom Assessment Scoring System (CLASS®) included in 23 states' Quality Rating and Improvement Systems and used by Head Start programs nationwide, today unveiled "Banking Time: Investing in Relationships," a new suite of tools to improve the quality of interactions between teachers and specific children birth through third grade, and in turn, to build strong, positive, equitable teacher-child relationships.
Did you know that over 12 million children in the United States (and more every year!) speak a language other than English at home? While the education workforce does not exactly parallel its students’ demographics, we know that many educators are also multilingual. That’s why Teachstone has resources available in both English and Spanish. All children deserve the individualized support and care that best fosters learning - and so do their caregivers and educators.
At Teachstone, our driving vision is to ensure every child experiences life-changing teaching. This mission is why we’re making a commitment to restabilize and improve education for every child, and every educator. And, we know that bringing this commitment to life requires providing education leaders with the support they need to not only face the current challenges, but that will propel towards the future of quality and equity.
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.
