Train educators to use technology strategically to redefine the classroom experience for all students.

Focus Area

Meaningful Tech Integration

The Phases of a Successful Implementation

Using technology to build student-centered classrooms requires alignment across your district, support from all of your stakeholders, differentiated training for your teachers, and a clear idea of what success looks like. Our learning plans include four distinct phases of implementation to create changes in classrooms across your district.

Build Your Foundation with the BL Lab

The BL Lab is at the center of your professional learning experience. Teachers can use the BL Lab to find new lesson plans and strategies, to receive support from their instructional coach, and check on their progress towards specific outcomes.

Instructional leaders can use self-directed courses to support PLCs with ongoing professional learning and offer new teachers a full library of research-backed strategies and lesson plans that can be accessed anytime during the school year.

Administrators have a bird’s eye view of their entire professional learning program and can easily access dashboards that show how specific groups of educators are progressing towards their goals.

The Phases of Meaningful Tech Integration

Launch

During the launch of a meaningful tech integration initiative, educators come together in person to learn new concepts, language, and practices. Launch experiences are most effective when they include the teachers, instructional leaders, and building leaders working together to enact these changes in practice.

Launching a Blended Learning Initiative | In-Person
Educators can articulate the shifts in practice needed to integrate technology into teaching practices to create meaningful, personalized learning experiences for students.

Planning

Teachers receive personalized support from a specially matched coach who works with educators to plan lessons that integrate technology, try new tech strategies, and measure how these changes impact student learning. Coaches use the Try-Measure-Learn approach to offer teachers job-embedded support that focuses on actionable changes and clear outcomes.

Educators work with a coach to create sustained shifts in practice aligned to target outcomes using our Try-Measure-Learn approach.

Assess Progress

A Learning Walk is a non-evaluative tool that helps instructional leaders identify and celebrate when teachers strategically use technology tools in their classrooms. Leaders will work collaboratively to understand what success looks like in the classroom, learn how to support teachers to achieve specific outcomes, and build an ongoing learning plan for the school year.

Learning Walk Cycle | In-Person
Leaders can identify evidence of the target outcomes in the classroom and in student learning.

Targeted Support

Virtual Workshops are collaborative learning experiences that bring teachers together to work toward sustainable changes in the classroom. Educators use Workshops to create goals, identify manageable implementation steps, and build a plan to measure the impact on student learning throughout the school year.

Build a Comprehensive Learning Plan, Tailored to Your District’s Needs

Creating an ongoing change in practice can typically take one to three years, depending on your district’s size and goals. BetterLesson’s comprehensive learning plans blend in-person, virtual, group, and individual learning experiences that occur throughout the full school year. Our team of educators will create a personalized learning plan that’s tailored to your district’s strategic plan, built from a variety of learning experiences to achieve your target outcomes.

Focus on Achievable Outcomes


Outcomes are the measures of success for all of our professional learning experiences. Each experience helps educators work toward a specific outcome to make the change in practice tangible and impactful for students and teachers. For educators working on meaningfully integrating technology into classrooms, we focus on achieving the below outcomes.

“The Learning Series is thorough and engaging. It pushed teachers out of their comfort zones, helping them engage with content, planning, technology, and each other.”

“Not only did my experience with BetterLesson help me adopt more blended learning practices in my classroom but it truly helped me become a better teacher. Through our conversations, I always felt comfortable asking my coach questions, advice, and [getting] feedback without ever feeling judged.”
