Frontline Education Announces Virtual Roundtable with Tech & Learning on Addressing Equity with Analytics-based Strategies
Webinar will demonstrate how data can support ways to benchmark student performance and identify opportunity gaps
Malvern, PA, March 1, 2022– Frontline Education, a leading provider of administration software purpose-built for educators in K-12, announced today that it will co-host a webinar with leading EdTech content resource, Tech & Learning. Attendees will hear from educators and experts on how they are using data to benchmark student performance, target opportunity gaps, develop strategies to accelerate student learning and ensure all students have equitable learning opportunities.
What: While one pillar of equity in education is accessibility, true equity goes beyond that and considers each student as an individual who deserves full access to a quality education. It cannot be limited to socioeconomic status, the uniqueness of the learner, race, gender, native language and ableism.
Student analytics can help school leaders to equitably identify opportunity gaps – a term that should evolve from “learning gaps” which implies a deficit on the part of the student, rather than “opportunity gaps” which focus on a strategic approach to targeted needs to ensure equity.
Frontline Education and Tech &Learning will co-host a webinar focused on analytics-based strategies through the lens of equity. Panelists will present on the national landscape and the critical importance of equity in K-12 education. Webinar attendees will gain an understanding of how student and location analytics can identify students who need strategic intervention based on grades, discipline and attendance and support learning strategies to ensure that all students are engaged within the school community and provided equitable opportunities.
Who: A panel of educators and experts will discuss and address ways to meet the challenge of equity in K-12 education.
