Verso Learning’s platform is a teaching resource designed to collect evidence and data from the classroom to develop and deliver personalized professional development and measure a teacher’s impact on student learning. The platform uses student response data, along with feedback from teachers, to recommend research-based strategies capable of enhancing the relationship between teacher and student.
Teachers have access to high-impact strategies and structures, practical guides, model activities, and personalized support that help them build lessons aligned with evidence-based best practices. In the process, schools and districts have visibility of teaching and learning in their classrooms and build a curriculum base of high-impact activities that have been proven to work by their own teachers.
The cloud-based platform is designed specifically for both teacher and student use and provides valuable insights to district leadership as well. Educators can use the platform as both a teaching tool and a professional development resource in the classroom that provides vital visibility for their impact on each student’s learning outcomes and highlights areas for improvement.
Teachers can refine advanced teaching strategies that align with their class activities and daily lesson plans, based on student or peer feedback and their own reflection data, enhancing the lessons’ effectiveness not only for them but for their students and their colleagues.
Lesson plans and activities are accessible to both teachers and students. Teachers can manage students’ work, while students can respond and comment on others’ work with the click of a button. The platform displays a visual representation of how engaged students are by providing graphs that compare with other students, along with recently completed activities and “strategy cards” offering best practices for specific lessons.
With PD training courses such as Engage with New Concepts and Teacher Clarity, schools and districts can deliver uniform, on-demand PD that includes lesson structures designed to help every student.
