Public Impact’s Checklist for Policymakers Interested in the Reach of Effective Teachers

Bryan and Emily Hassell at Public Impact are doing some fascinating work on extending the reach of excellent teachers through their Opportunity Culture initiative. They do not focus exclusively on technology as a means of facilitating teacher reach, but they do see it as an important tool in several of their models.

One document that they’ve produced that I feel may be especially helpful to practitioners and policymakers who are looking for sage guidance in this area is a two-page policy checklist. The fact that technology is promoted as a means to an end – to extend the reach of effective teachers in order to support higher achievement for more students – as opposed to as the end itself is an extremely important message.
