Did you know that only 25 percent of classes are taught by excellent teachers? We need to find ways to leverage great teachers and extend their talents to more students through the use of technology, new classroom models, and more.
OpportunityCulture.org recently published an infographic on Extending the Reach of Excellent Teachers, which takes a look at why excellent teaching matters to student success and the ways that technology can extend the reach of great teachers.
Past strategies in recruiting, developing and dismissing teachers won’t cut it today. Technology makes it possible to identify the great teachers and make them available to more students. New strategies can include:
- Teacher specialization
- Multi-classroom leadership
- Time-technology swaps, and
- Remote teaching.
