When we think of a pillar, strength and support inevitably come to mind.
According to Merriam-Webster, a pillar is a firm upright support for a superstructure. It’s a supportive, integral, or upstanding part, a fundamental precept. In K-12 classrooms everywhere, a strong set of pillars are needed to provide a productive, supportive learning foundation for all students.
In today’s evolving educational landscape, innovative pedagogy, interactive learning, and student engagement are paramount to building a modern classroom that drives student success. These elements are enabled by thoughtful technology that enrichs, supports, and connects every stage of the teaching and learning cycle:
Instruct – Teachers start by implementing innovative instructional strategies to engage students in learning experiences.
Assess – To evaluate where students are in their learning journey, teachers deliver assessments that check for understanding and gauge student progress.
Reflect – Comprehensive data provides teachers with meaningful insights about who their students are, where they’re going, and how to best engage with them.
Advance – Teachers and administrators then use these insights to inform instruction and make decisions that affect student, class, school, and district-level outcomes.
