Educators have an ever-increasing stream of data at their fingertips. But how to use this data to improve teaching and learning — how to make it less overwhelming, more useful, and part of an effective collaborative process that informs instruction and supports all students in their learning — can be challenging.
The Data Wise Project at the Harvard Graduate School of Education works with educators around the world to develop resources that support collaborative improvement of teaching and learning. We help schools, districts, and organizations cultivate the habits of mind, norms, and practices that support continuous improvement and lead to equitable student outcomes.
To support you in this challenging work, we have developed a learning pathway that provides you with an opportunity to explore the 8-steps of the Data Wise Improvement Process, to prepare to successfully launch the process in your setting, and to receive dedicated coaching over an academic year as you integrate Data Wise into your core work. You can also build your capacity to coach others in using the Data Wise process and then network with certified coaches to get the support you need to sustain and deepen your Data Wise work.
