Teacher Workshop in Baltimore

Dear LearningFront Colleagues:

Maritime Industries Academy High School! Last week we completed a start-up workshop for teachers at the Maritime Industries Academy High School in Baltimore Maryland. 

Teachers, school improvement leaders, and curricular specialists from the Baltimore City Public School System were on hand to learn about LearningFront and to develop data-driven and standards-based lessons using TaskBuilderOnline. The teachers will develop similar lessons, teach them, and score and analyze the results each month as part of their school’s instructional improvement strategy.

The curriculum specialists are collaborating with the teachers and will be able to “Clone” lessons back and forth for feedback and support. Each teacher “cloned” a workshop lesson to the principal at the end of the workshop while the principal’s
Task Folder was projected on a large screen -- a very cool way to measure the productivity of the workshop! I encourage you to consider making one of these LearningFront pioneers your colleague and to search their work using WikiTask on the tool bar in LearningFront.

Nick Hobar
President, LearningFront
