    Introducing the Lexile and Quantile Educator Academy

    Introducing the Lexile and Quantile Educator Academy

    In this episode of the TeacherCast Podcast, Jeff sits down with Sue Ann Towle from https://metametricsinc.com/ (MetaMetrics) to discuss the https://educatoracademy.lexile.com/ (Lexile and Quantile Educator Academy), a new self-paced professional learning program to help teachers learn how to have a deeper understanding of Lexile and Quantile frameworks.

    In This Episode ...Both the Lexile and Quantile courses offer an interactive curriculum featuring direct instruction, knowledge checks, summative assessments, and performance tasks. Each course is 10-hours, self-paced and asynchronous. Upon completion of the professional development courses, teachers become Certified Lexile or Quantile Educators. In addition, in more than 20 states, teachers will be awarded CEUs or professional development hours on completion of each course.
    Summer has long been the time for teachers to take advantage of professional development opportunities, particularly options that are self-directed. A https://www.rand.org/pubs/research_briefs/RBA196-1.html (recent study by Rand’s American Teacher Panel) revealed that 99 percent of teachers surveyed said they participated in professional learning activities over summer break.

    “After facing the challenges of the 2020-2021 school year, teachers tell us they are looking for professional development opportunities to help individualize instruction when they return to the classroom in the fall,” said Malbert Smith, CEO and co-founder, MetaMetrics. “With our Lexile and Quantile certification courses, teachers can leverage the measures their students are likely already receiving through a state or classroom assessment and learn about strategies and resources for implementing individualized instruction.”
    Teachers who complete the courses will gain a deeper understanding of how to make the Lexile and Quantile frameworks actionable for learning and discover award-winning tools and resources on the Lexile or Quantile Hub to support their efforts. They will also learn strategies for communicating effectively with parents about student performance and growth and ways to use the universal measures with their colleagues.
    Educators who participated in a preview of the Quantile Certification Course had high praise. “This has been a very valuable course. I had zero background in all things related to Quantile measures,” said Laura Graham, elementary teacher at Pender County Schools in North Carolina, “This will help me better plan for my students, sharing with my colleagues, and communicating with parents. The myriad resources allow me to expand my knowledge of teaching mathematics.”
    Each course is $99. For information about volume discounts, contact support@lexile.com. To enroll or learn more, go to http://educatoracademy.lexile.com (EducatorAcademy.Lexile.com).

Fantastic!

If you are a Tech Coach or Integration specialist whatever you’re title is - if your job is to support teachers with technology this is the podcast for you. Every time I listen to it I get great ideas and the weekly meet ups is so great because I’m a new tech coach and building my professional learning network is so important right now. Thank you so much for this wonderful podcast!

Tons of great content, lots of ideas!

I've been listening to this podcast for over two years and continue to learn new things about what is going on in education today. I'm impressed with the self-less nature of Jeff - and of his podcast guests - who do this because they genuinely care about the education and welfare of their students. This podcast is a source of inspiration for me and is a reliable source for ideas and information on the use of technology in the classroom. I have greatly enhanced my own presentations with what I have learned! What a terrific resource for teachers and educators in all strata of the educational system! I have to say that as I have listened to this podcast - and my awareness of the current status of education in America has increased - my faith has been restored in the education system in this country. I have always respected teachers for what they have to do to make their students experience the best possible (and how difficult that has been, and can be)...but that repsect has increased exponentially as I listened to what so many of them are doing - mostly on their own time, and sometimes, at their own expense - in and out of the classroom on behalf of the students and their families. Granted, things are far from ideal (in America's education system, in general), but with people like Jeff, and those who appear and contribute to this podcast, our students will truly benefit from their time in school. Well done, Jeff! I will certainly continue to tell educators (and parents!) that I meet about TeacherCast! Stellar!!

I always get something...

I've been listening for a few months now, and I always hear about great uses of technology in the classroom. Jeff and colleagues LOVE sharing information, and provide thorough, pertinent and timely advice to any educator who wants to use technology in a better way in her/his classroom. Keep a note-taker on hand while listening; you’ll never remember all they share.
