Is it important?

get started now

How important is it for a student to learn how to get along in a group? Learn how to cooperate to get projects done? Develop habits of perseverence and grit to tackle projects even in the face of disappointment and failure? How important is it to learn that when you make a mistake, you find a way to make things right, at least to the extent that that can be done?

It might be that learning and mastering the skills of social behavior in school could be among the most important things a student can learn.

Education is Changing

Teacher
Punishment for Violations
  → Prevent New Problems

Punishment has a big advantage: it's quick and easy. But it has disadvantages: it often fosters resentment and often removes the student from the classroom and from learning. That's the advantage of positive behavior supports: teaching expectations then shaping behavior with positive feedback and keeping students in class. But that puts a bigger burden on teachers. Punishment for misbehavior isn't eliminated but it is needed less frequently. And research has shown that a mixed approach of "carrots" and "sticks" works better than either alone. We provide the tools to support both.

3-tier
Uniform Rules
  → 3-Tier Framework

Positive discipline can be a lot more work for the teacher than quick and easy punishment. The solution: better tools and better focused attention. The 3-tier framework simplifies the task by grouping students according to the behavior attention they need. And Edclick makes it easier.

Feedback
Midterms and Finals
  → Frequent Feedback

Research has shown that one of the most effective teaching strategies is to provide frequent feedback. It works for academic classes and it works for behavior, too. The key is to teach expected behaviors, then provide frequent feedback, both positive and negative, on how the student's behavior is measuring up. Does all that feedback overload busy teachers? Research also shows that student self-monitoring is as effective or more effective as monitoring by teachers. You just need the right tools.

Mortarboard
Teachers doing their best
  → Training for Classroom Management

Classroom management is typically not taught in ed school yet the stress of unruly students is a frequent reason for teachers leaving the profession. And it means lower student achievement. Most teachers manage their classrooms well but some need more help and a few need a lot more help. The 3-tier framework applies to teaching teacher skills, too. It simplifies the administrator's job. Edclick's just-in-time training is based on the issues a teacher is facing in the classroom right now as revealed by collected data. Our self-monitored skill practice is tied to day-to-day experience in the teacher's own classroom.

Computer
Paper Forms
  → Web-based Systems

Most documentation in most schools is still done on paper. With ubiquitous laptops, tablets and smartphones information collection is easier, faster, more effective and more efficient. Moving online brings a wealth of new opportunities based on access, aggregation, visualization and manipulation of collected data.

Graph
Ad Hoc Decision Making
  → Data-Based Decision Making

With data going online where it can be easily accessed, viewed and manipulated, we no longer need to make decisions solely on hunches. Available data, reporting, drill downs and dashboards make trends, status and problem areas easy to see. And when we take steps to improve, data answers the question, "did it work?"

Databases
Data Silos
  → Integrated Data Systems

Integrated data systems bring together data from disparate systems (the data silos) to save work and eliminate transcription errors. Our data systems talk to other data systems you may already be using.

Parents
Limited Communication with Parents
  → Parents as Partners

We all want parents as partners in their child's education. But how can we accomplish that without putting even more burden on teachers? First, Edclick makes some communication automatic such as when a student gets a merit award or an office referral. But it also can notify parents when nothing happens such as automatically notifying parents of the good news of a problem-free day after a series of incidents. We also keep track of the types of communication with parents so teachers and administrators have evidence of the ratio of positive messages to negative messages which is essential for getting parents and teachers on the same side.

Building
Break the School-to-Jail Pipeline

Punishment is quick but often generates student resentment, not the desire or skills to behave better. Out-of-placement punishments reduce student achievement: if they aren't in class, they won't pass. But serious misbehavior requires a serious response. Yet, that doesn't mean that the student must resent the consequence or that the student must miss class. Edclick provides for more effective consequences. Restorative justice and restitution aim to "make it right" rather than simply punish. Student responses to our Discipline Questionnaires and Character Builders often reveal root causes for misbehavior which can then be addressed.
