Blended professional learning built for a blended world
Teacher building, NOT teacher proofing
The most important technology investment you can make in any classroom is the teacher
We believe the best professional learning happens when teachers do their day-to-day work with feedback and discussion along the way.
Our online professional learning platform, LDC LEARN, is designed to be used during the school day as part of ongoing collaborative teams or PLCs—reducing reliance on substitutes and workshops. With LDC LEARN, you can rapidly enhance the power of PLCs and see immediate classroom application.
With LDC LEARN, teachers master skills in four instructional competencies that endure beyond a single lesson or school year. Teachers grow their expertise in:
Analyzing assignments for standards and student learning goals
Constructing quality assignment prompts
Developing quality instructional plans
Assessing outcomes and iterating instruction
LDC LEARN isn’t new work. Teachers plan, teach, and evaluate their impact on student growth—repeatedly. We fuel the fundamental work you are doing already.
LDC LEARN components
Online professional learning
Data analytics and progress monitoring performance reporting
An LDC LEARN license provides resources for a year-long professional learning plan for an entire school, grade level, or job-alike group of teachers (ex. STEM, History, etc.). Our bite-sized Khan Academy-style activities guide educators through online learning experiences such as coding assignments for standards alignment or collaboratively analyzing standards in 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.
