WISD History with BrightBytes
This school year WISD added a new component, Brightbytes Technology and Learning, to supplement the data we already collect from sources such as the Speak Up survey. Brightbytes provides a research based data collection survey to collect responses from all teachers, admins, 3rd-12th grade students, and as many parents as possible.
BrightBytes provides technology use data management for school districts across the nation. Their platforms integrate, analyze, and organize complex data from multiple systems across research-based frameworks to deliver educative, engaging, and actionable visualized results that drive student learning.
BrightBytes uses a framework of survey questions to collect and interprets data to personalize student learning and track achievement. Data results will provide insight into the factors that determine the effectiveness of technology in improving student achievement. The data will be calculated on an overall numeric score aligned to a five-color maturity scale: Beginning (gray), Emerging (pink), Proficient (yellow), Advanced (green), and Exemplary (Blue). The BrightBytes CASE Framework provides a holistic perspective on technology across four domains:
- Classroom use of technology, including teacher and student integration of technology for communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and creativity.
- Support for technology implementation around areas for professional learning, and the extent to which the school policies, practices, and procedures (3Ps) support the use of technology.
- Student and teacher access to technology at home and at school.
- Student and teacher perception about technology use in the classroom.
