A new breed of technology is driving a shift in how we view and use formative assessment. When fully realized, educators will be engaged, empowered, and equipped to interrupt, disrupt, and prevent the failure to learn versus treating failed learning. Beyond information, formative assessment reimagined provides in-time insight and intelligence of, for, and by the learner to adapt and adjust learning, as the learner is learning—not after instruction. To that end, this webinar will focus on three essential learnings:

How Can Supervisors Shape Effective Principals?
Date: Tuesday, April 26, 2016
Time: 1-2 p.m. ET
Today's school principals need support for their development and growth as society places higher expectations on them to be instructional leaders who improve student learning and achievement. A new first-ever set of standards, developed by a committee of 12 educators led by the Council of Chief State School Officers whose work was supported by The Wallace Foundation, is intended to assist state education agencies and local school districts to help recruit, select, support and evaluate supervisors of principals. The standards emphasize shifting the supervisor's role away from the traditional focus on bureaucratic compliance toward fostering the growth of effective principals who improve both teaching and learning.
