Visible data inspires collective motivation and ownership.

As educators, it’s our goal to help students progress, achieve, and build confidence in themselves and their learning. We are witnessing schools do so by using simple continuous improvement strategies in the classroom. To share what this looks like, we’ve interviewed Leader Coach, Dr. Kathleen Orapollo, an expert in designing unique adult and student learning experiences. Today, Kathy and Janet discuss why classroom improvement is critical for students and staff, simple strategies to implement, and how a middle school is actively using improvement cycles.

This episode answers questions such as:

  • How does continuous improvement build the fundamentals of organizational excellence?
  • What tools and strategies help teachers and students understand and implement classroom improvement?
  • Why is it critical for success to keep data visible?
