Everyone knows collaborating with teachers and connecting with parents helps positively impact student performance. But as a United Federation of Teachers survey discovered, 1 in 3 educators reported that they spend more time on paperwork than with teachers or parents, and 86% admitted to being very challenged with managing the resources needed to meet their school’s needs, so the question is when?
There just isn’t time.
Education professionals may find these statistics heartbreaking, but few — if any — are surprised by them. It’s a real Catch-22. Yes, interacting with fellow teachers and parents improves student performance, but when time is limited and the pressures of accountability never ends, there is no time to provide support that advances student achievement.
Fortunately, technology — the same technology that has sped our lives to a mind blowing pace — also offers a solution to keep educators on top of all that is required of you without wasting more valuable time. Tech-enhanced lesson planning offers administrators and teachers, teachers and students, parents and schools tremendous opportunities for collaboration. There’s nothing like connectivity to rev up a school or district and inspire the teaching and learning community towards accomplishing great things.
If you’re still using traditional approaches like creating lesson plans in document management systems, you’re missing a major opportunity to get more from lesson planning. Tech-enhanced lesson planning lets team members easily swap previous lesson plans, co-plan, and communicate, so prep-time can be used as efficiently as possible. It frees up the day for mentoring, connecting with the community, and getting straight to the important work that moves schools and districts to higher student achievement.
