  • Self IntroductionI represent the Gates Foundation, so I’m here to address the Philanthropy Perspective on education. I’d like to speak with you about the challenges in the classroom today and one of the specific initiatives underway to address it.[Stephen: Need to add some context language about how this fits within the Gates Foundations Next Generation models efforts and overall education initiatives – based on the topic of the presentation it will be expected]
  • Concept: Intelli-Seats by The A-Team

    2. 2. What did we create and why is this important?• Standardized and summative assessment data can only provide a limited picture of student needs. In order to gain a more complete picture of the student, the teacher needs formative assessment data, both quantitative and qualitative, that can be recorded on the fly. At this point, there is no one-stop-shopping way of doing that.• This problem potentially impacts all students in all classrooms; in terms of teacher cost, it is negligible in terms of dollars, but can impact the teacher up to ten hours per week• An interactive seating chart allows teachers to: – input student data in the form of assessment scores, observations and needs – access student data (grade book, standardized scores, demographic information) – see (at-a-glance) the RtI status of students in the class – connect students to specific interventions• Teachers need an application on a mobile device that will allow them to easily access and input data in a seating chart format.

    3. 3. How did we validate the problem?Research:• Interviewed both teachers and administrators in elementary and high schoolsKey Findings:Both teachers and administrators have complained about…• the time taken to enter data in non-electronic form, and then re-entering that data into a data base outside of class time• data that has been lost or missed due to not having an immediate system in which to record the data Editable title in the footer 11/26/2012 3
    4. 4. Leveraging SLCHow SLC was used to bring the solution together:• The connective aspect of SLC allows the opportunity for teachers to pull and enter data in one place, even if it is ultimately housed in different systems. Editable title in the footer 11/26/2012 4
