Solution Tree And MasteryConnect Partner To Support The Advancement Of Professional Learning Communities

BLOOMINGTON, Ind., March 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Educational technology company MasteryConnect has partnered with Solution Tree, a K-12 professional development and consulting company, to offer a new, cloud-based solution to help educators track mastery of standards, advance their PLCs, and share formative assessments aligned with the Common Core State Standards.

"The Common Core State Standards opened the door for uniformity, shared resources, and collaboration," says Trenton Goble, MasteryConnect cofounder and chief academic officer. Goble, who has over 20 years of experience in education, says he first heard of PLCs while working in Salt Lake City's Jordan School District, where the process had been adopted. Goble wondered how he could leverage technology to streamline the work of collaboration vital to the culture of a PLC.

The result is a cloud-based solution that allows teachers and administrators to connect with each other and share assessments, data reports, and more while tracking mastery of standards. Goble compares the networking features to Facebook, with the advantage of connecting singleton educators who may be working in isolation within their schools or districts.

"Solution Tree is excited about the capacity to complement the PLC at Work™ process with this technology," says Ed Ackerman, president and chief operating officer of Solution Tree. "Educators will discover new resources for sharing assessments, tracking data, and harnessing collaboration."

Teachers from over 8,000 districts in all 50 states and Washington, D.C. have already joined the growing community, and over 1,400 assessments are uploaded weekly.

"Educators can now extend their professional learning communities beyond their schools," says Richard DuFour, one of the original architects of the PLC at Work™ process. "This ready access to expanded expertise is exactly what we have been hoping would become available to educators."
