On-Demand Webinar - Improving the Equity in Personalized Learning through a Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) Approach

  • Time displayed above is EST - The webinar will be available everywhere via Zoom

 

While Personalized learning can be a powerful tool for educators seeking to provide equitable outcomes for students, It has been proven much less successful when not delivered within a data-driven, Multi-tiered System of Support (MTSS) framework.

We are hosting a webinar during which we will present data from 300K students showing that there are large inequities in the implementation of PL, however, when delivered within a data-driven, Multi-tiered System of Support (MTSS) framework, PL can be delivered equitably and significantly reduce the racial achievement gap.

On Demand Webinar - Successful intervention planning in RTI / MTSS to improve student outcomes

Teachers spend a lot of time and effort discussing student needs, creating plans, providing differentiated support, and documenting the work--however, without the right intervention plan, the work becomes a documentation process instead of the intended problem-solving practice. In this webinar, Dr. Nicole Moriarty, Director of ENL, and Catherine Shanahan, Instructional Leader K12, of Mineola Union Free School District in New York joined together with Dr. Essie Sutton, Director of Learning Science, and Dr. Eva Dundas, Chief Learning Officer at Branching Minds, to discuss best practices for intervention planning in a MTSS/RTI model.
