Students don’t see all the work that teachers do beyond the classroom; they don’t see the piles of grading, the growing to-do lists, or the earnest lesson planning. We do.
That’s why we developed our line of educator growth products with educators in mind. After all, we’re rooted in education ourselves. The greatest issue that educators and administrators face is a lack of time, so we’ve created a Growth Platform that is intuitive, making it simple for users to complete tasks and obtain the information they need. Help your educators move beyond simply checking off requirements and towards building opportunities for student success.
Performance Matters for Teacher Education
Teacher education is not only required by every state board, but is an important part of professional development. Whether teaching primary or secondary education, every school educator should be well-rounded in subjects such as education communications and mathematics, as well as in teaching strategies and classroom development.
What Is Delivered
Performance Matters’ mission is to deliver world-class professional learning solutions, in parallel with content and analytics. This approach accelerates measurable improvements in learning and teaching by identifying an educator’s specific and individual goals, and helping them attain them.
- Educators can search, view, and sign up for tailored professional development classes from an easy-to-use, personalized Course Catalog.
- Offered training and activities include workshops, events, in-person classes, and online courses.
- Access to Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) facilitates peer knowledge distribution through discussion boards and content sharing.
- With embedded coaching and mentoring tools, long-term relationships are encouraged and enabled.
- Progress is tracked with transcripts of course completion status and credits.
The truth is, 80% of educators already possess a “growth mindset” and believe continuous improvement is vital to their own success. Other insightful statistics include 96% of educators want to receive meaningful feedback on strengths and professional needs and 97% of educators want a choice in their professional development and want learning that is tied back to their own goals.
With Performance Matters, all of this is delivered directly to those who want and need it most.
The Benefits for Educators
Performance Matters makes it easy for educators to get all the applicable learning they need, all in one place by offering fulfilling courses that are accessible and can be completed online anywhere and at any time. With each learning opportunity rated by colleagues, quality is assured.
There are many benefits to this way of organization and learning. Typically, educators spend much of their day focused solely on their students’ classroom achievement goals. Now, educators can finally focus on their own development as well, without the hassle, confusion, and time-consuming practices of trying to do it all on their own. Not only will teachers themselves benefit from this approach, but also their students.
