How Slope Research Supports Implementation of LDC Tools

Slope Research partnered with the Colorado Education Initiative (CEI) and to study the collaborative behavior of educators involved in the Literacy Design Collaborative (LDC) in Colorado.

Educators in Colorado involved in LDC were asked to answer questions about their experience using LDC, and to identify other educators they communicated with when dealing with issues related to LDC implementation. Slope analyzed the survey data using network analysis, a statistical technique that allows for the evaluation of patterns of communication between individuals or other entities in a group, in order to create a social network of educators using LDC in Colorado. The network resulting from the data collection effort contained more than 500 educators in Colorado and described and diagramed the pattern of communication between these LDC educators.
