As we come to the end of the school year, it’s time to reflect on the year, evaluate how it went, and use that data to plan for next year. So this week, we’ll be focusing on evaluation of our videoconference programs.
What Do We Evaluate?
- How many videoconferences were done by each school
- Which teachers used VC and why
- Which teachers that used VC in the past didn’t use it this year and why
- Which programs that we offered were effective and which weren’t
- Effect on student achievement (if possible)
- Which schools need more assistance
- What the training needs are for the summer and next year
- What else can you think of?
