Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

DCPS, like many districts, has had a rise in newcomers, coupled with recent investment in 5 district-wide tech coaches. Coaches used tools, like ClassNotebook and SMART Online Learning Suite, to train teachers to select and implement tools that foster collaboration between students, rather than traditional blended learning models. At the beginning of the year, zero classrooms observed were using technology for increasing inclusion for ELL students. The poster will document data and effectiveness of training from the year, as well as lessons learned from the professional development model.

The poster provides data gathered over the year on specific tools for creating more inclusive practices for ELLs through tech, strategies learned through implementing inclusive tech at the district-level, and key steps taken to deepen teacher investment during implementation.
