Deepening Elementary Teachers’ Content Knowledge in Mathematics

A Prototype for Job-Embedded Professional Learning Driven by Real-Time Student Data

 

With a research grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, DreamBox Learning recently developed and tested an exciting and innovative prototype environment for teacher professional development (PD). The prototype engages teachers in a dynamic, self-paced experience that enables them to use real-time student performance data as a starting point for relevant professional learning. It represents a scalable way to deepen teachers’ content knowledge in mathematics while also informing their classroom curriculum and lessons.

This white paper explores:

  • Key findings that link teacher usage to student growth
  • The research informing the prototype’s design
  • How the PD prototype integrates with broader professional learning initiatives
  • Recommendations for future development that can benefit education leaders as well as other providers and organizations interested in improving professional learning services for teachers
