Best Practices in Implementing an Online Learning Program for Elementary Literacy Intervention
Monday, March 6 3:20-3:40 PM
Educators face many challenges when integrating technology into school systems. During the 2015–2016 school year, a school district in the Pacific Northwest received a large technology grant to integrate new programs into its schools. The district chose to use Imagine Learning, an online language and literacy program, to support struggling readers and English Language Learners. The Imagine Learning research team studied the district’s implementation of the program through extensive interviews and observations. In this presentation, we share effective practices for implementation identified through interviews and observations. Specifically, teachers described practices related to classroom management, monitoring academic growth, and communicating and collaborating with others.
