Teachscape has added the Android line of devices to the list of mobile operating systems and devices compatible with the Classroom Walkthrough (CWT) technology. Using these devices, principals and other instructional leaders can gather observational data about classroom practices and upload this data to Teachscape’s secure server for reporting and analysis.

After classroom data is entered into a handheld device, the results of the walkthrough are uploaded via a wireless or cellular connection to the Teachscape website. Users then log onto the Teachscape website to view the uploaded entries and generate reports on the aggregated data to assist in identifying trends and patterns in teaching and learning.

The CWT data collection application is typically implemented as part of the Classroom Walkthrough process which uses the walkthrough data to engage instructional leaders and teachers in reflective learning communities focused on adjusting instruction to meet student needs.

In addition to supporting the Android line of devices, Teachscape CWT technology is also compatible with BlackBerry, iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, Palm, and Windows Mobile devices. CWT was recently named a recipient of the 2010 Tech & Learning Awards of Excellence.
