Tracking data

With all of the pushes to use data and the now endlessly diverse sources through which schools are generating data, all schools need a spreadsheet-style platform that will allow them to use and organize a large variety of information about students.

Digital School

How do we meet the needs of Americans who can't or won't attend school as a place? Illness, frequent relocation, emotional issues, poverty, addiction, age; there are so many barriers to learning when access to education is reserved for those who can be in certain buildings at specific times. Asynchronous distance learning may be the answer. Migrant students would have a stable sequential experience, high school students... more »
