Enterprising Instruction

TeacherFrontClassroomUsing data to inform instruction is one of the Obama administration’s keys to effective school reform, and technology is helping a growing number of educators accurately identify their students’ needs and deliver targeted—and timely—interventions when appropriate. To benefit fully from such a data-driven instructional model, schools need a system for tying their instructional and administrative processes together—in effect, bringing an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) approach to the classroom. By doing this, educators can more effectively and efficiently create, manage, and align their curriculum, standards, assessments, and instruction to drive student achievement.

With the generous support of Global Scholar, we’ve compiled this collection of stories from our archives, along with other relevant material from around the web, to help you see just how beneficial a modernized, informed approach to instruction can be.
