School Improvement Network today announced an opportunity for educators to preview the Educator Effectiveness System, a K-12 solution.

The Educator Effectiveness System combines personalized professional learning, teacher observations and evaluations, and support and resources for Common Core implementation and includes the following products:

  • PD 360 on-demand library of training videos, which provides support tools and resources to help educators apply the classroom strategies and practices outlined in the videos. PD 360 also contains an online professional learning community of nearly 1,000,000 verified educators.
  • Observation 360, a classroom observation platform that allows administrators to conduct observations and link personalized professional learning to those observations.
  • Common Core 360, a training tool that helps teachers implement the Common Core Standards. Common Core 360 contains a library of videos of master educators implementing almost every standard in the Core.
  • LumiBook, an e-reading platform that enables real-time author updates, community participation, and rich content.

A free trial of the Educator Effectiveness System is available here.
