The innovation I chose is #19 from the Google doc. The innovation arose from practice, and it is an example of learning through assessment.
What is it?
MasteryConnect is an app for educators to collate and share resources and assessment data. Educators can find and save resources, track curriculum standards (website appears to be US-focused, with ‘Common Core’ standards referenced), collect data, and create reports. The app also makes it easy to share the data between educators, students, and families.
How might it be used?
Educators would use this as a way to save time by having all of their resources and data in one place. The instant grading tools and automatically generated report cards means educators always have an up-to-date record of their students achievements against curriculum standards. Being able to share data between educators means classroom teachers can know instantly the work completed and progress made in intervention or extension groups. Educators can also share the data easily with admin, students, and famillies.
Why it helps student learning
Educators who use this ICT effectively will always know their students’ progress, and will be able to differentiate according to the needs of their students and ensure that they are working towards goals that are relevant to their understanding.
