BrightBytes Virtual Workshops - Part 2

The intent of this workshop series is to help educators use their school's BrightBytes data as they collaborate with others in their school or district to improve teaching and learning with technology. The shorter sessions are designed to make it easier for folks to attend while also providing the opportunity to take what we discuss and have some conversations with colleagues between sessions. Over the course of these mini-workshops, educators will identify one (1) important data point, build a small data cluster of supporting data points, and develop 3 to 5 initial action steps.

Educators can choose to attend all sessions or just a few. Each will have valuable information! Additionally, recordings of each session will be posted on the MLTI website.

For this session, take that data point and find it a few friends, no more than 4. How do these supporting data points connect? Why are they relevant? What have you done in the past that has influenced teacher or student responses? How did it go?
