Spring (Data) Clean Up: Organize data in a user-friendly manner.

As much as cleaning feels like a chore, the end product is well worth the effort.  The same goes for data, too! Unfortunately, quality data often times falls short of its true potential because the data is not clearly stated or is disorganized in its presentation. 

Now that you have 1) laid the ground rules for the appropriate data to be collected, 2) collected said data, and 3) performed timely analysis on it, it is time to 4) make sure that your data is heard and is understandable.  

All of those things you wanted to do during the year, but didn't get to. Summer is your chance to catch up!

As summer gets closer and closer we wanted to give you a one-stop read to find some great resources for you to refer to over the summer when you have a bit more time on your hands to maybe dive into a few things you had on your list during the school year.

We want you to be able to be connected to those experts in the field that you can follow and subscribe to ensuring that you're receiving the best solutions! Plus, EdTech is everywhere and there are countless options for incorporating it into your classroom, but HOW to do it takes a bit more time.

Know someone who is great with kids, would enjoy a part-time job, and could benefit from an education award? 

N.D. Reading Corps can help with all of these things, plus tutors receive fantastic training and can connect with local schools.

Tutors earn a monthly living stipend of $415 or $620 and an education award of $1,538 or $2,215 depending upon hours served.
