Reducing Teacher Attrition
Fellow Educators Love Practice
Practice’s innovation has the potential to scale -- at low cost -- the ability for teachers to collaboratively learn from each other by viewing, analyzing and critiquing novice and master teachers’ skills in an asynchronous, online format that significantly decreases the need for time-consuming in-person professional development.
Practice can provide relevant, high-quality, school-based professional development without requiring an enormous time commitment from our already over-committed teachers and administrators.
Practice’s platform, in addition to providing teachers a medium to practice their skills, distributes the work of mentoring. In essence it “crowdsources” mentors. In doing so, Practice multiplies the opportunities for high order apprenticeship learning that previously depended on non-scalable, face-to-face interactions.
Although a majority of states require induction/mentoring programs for new teachers, a traditional mentorship is costly and thus not done often or done superficially. Providing a way to scale mentorships can increase the number and persistence of quality teachers in the classroom.
