The most important technology investment you can make in any classroom is in the teacher.
We believe the best professional learning happens when teachers do their day-to-day work with feedback and discussion along the way.
LDC LEARN is designed to be used during the school day as part of ongoing collaborative teams or PLCs—reducing reliance on substitutes and workshop.
With LDC LEARN, you can rapidly enhance the power of PLCs and see immediate classroom application. Quality curriculum in the hands of a skilled teacher results in measurable increases in student engagement and outcomes.
Tech-enabled instructional cycles (lesson study) work with any curriculum, any discipline, and any grade level. Using backwards design principles, teachers target the essentials: high-quality assignments and student-centered instructional sequences focused on writing in response to complex texts in all disciplines.
LDC LEARN isn’t new work—teachers plan, teach, and evaluate their impact on student growth. Over and over again. We fuel the fundamental work you are doing already.
LDC LEARN Components
An LDC LEARN license provides the resources for a year-long professional learning plan for an entire school, grade level, or job-alike group of teachers (i.e. STEM, History, etc.). Licenses are priced to serve an unlimited number of teachers in a single school or a cohort of 25 teachers across multiple schools or a region. Teachers refine existing or plan new rigorous, standards-driven assignments and instruction, and assess their impact on student growth and outcomes.
Our bite-sized Khan Academy-style activities guide educators through online learning experiences such as coding assignments for standards alignment or collaboratively analyzing student work. With our instructional cycles, teachers refine existing or plan new rigorous, standards-driven assignments and instruction, and assess their impact on student growth.
All LDC LEARN sessions are organized in a manner that fits most PLC planning structures rather than requiring you to pull teachers out of the classroom.
