The League Cohort Report - Digital Promise

The League Cohort Report

Cohorts are League learning communities focused on discussing challenges and sharing best practices and resources.

Cohorts are formed and led by members of the League around areas of interests, including but not limited to: topical areas of interest (maker learning, competency-based education, etc.); urbanicity (suburban, urban, rural); and affinity groups (women, leaders of color, etc.).

Our cohorts for 2018–2019 are:

Rural Districts

This cohort will explore their different challenges, share their best practices, and showcase how they have found creative ways to bring innovations to their schools and communities that fit their geographical context and models.

Learner Variability

Learner variability is the new norm in classrooms nationwide. Students are more diverse than ever linguistically, economically, and culturally. In this cohort, we will explore how to re-think aspects of the education system to address this diversity of learners, including applying the burgeoning field of learning sciences research to best support each student.

Engaged Learning

Engaging students is important to motivate and inspire their learning and is vital and necessary for deeper learning. This cohort will investigate how we might engage learners as we introduce new technologies, and share new ideas and best practices for engaging all learners.

Data Interoperability

If data is important to student learning, how are we getting the right data into the hands of teachers? The purpose of this group is to explore and understand the processes of how data interoperability and the use of data standards can facilitate access to data in a timely manner.

Innovative Assessment Models

Judging a student’s development based on a single test on a single day can present an inaccurate and shallow picture of student learning. The cohort will share best practices around supplementing summative assessments by developing alternative methods that get to a deeper, better understanding of students work grounded in evidence of learning.
