Effective student learning occurs with frequent teacher feedback to students that encourages self-reflection on the part of students followed by the reteaching of concepts necessary to ensure student mastery of concepts taught.
The most reliable measure for improving teaching and learning could be derived from frequent and effective teacher observations and constructive feedback from the observers designed to improve teacher performance and subsequently student performance in an atmosphere laden with trust and devoid of fear of reprisals!
Creative and innovative teaching fortified by effective instructional coaching produce a vibrant learning environment where students blossom intellectually and are equipped with college-ready, career and successful life skills.
According to a report in the Los Angeles Times today, Friday February 20, 2015 by Howard Blume , Ramon Cortines, the Interim Superintendent of Los Angeles Unified School District declared that the school district does not have enough funds to provide IPADS for every student, teacher and administrator to fulfill an “ill-fated $1.3-billion” initiative by John Deasy, the former superintendent. Students will be provided computers for testing and instruction as needed. Superintendent Cortines stated, “I don’t believe we can afford a device for every student … Education shouldn’t become the gimmick of the year.”
