Teacher Dashboard visits Washington

Last week the Teacher Dashboard team visited Washington D.C for the Microsoft’s Global Education Partners Summit to find out more about how Microsoft is putting education at the top of it’s priority list by pushing its partners to implement its innovative applications to help in the classroom.

There was also a fantastic talk by Alberto Carvalho, Superintendent of Miami-Dade County Public Schools about his amazing successes in turning around the attitude towards and results achieved in education in Miami-Dade by embracing technology and removing barriers to learning. For a WSJ review, please click here.

Time flies for Teacher Dashboard

Since the pilot began several months ago, the product has been continually improving in response to the pilot users' feedback. The first major piece of functionality we added as a result of the pilot was a way to view the files of all students in a single view. Since then we've also massively improved group management and simplified the sharing process.

The success of the pilot means that word is spreading fast, and we have been receiving unsolicited enquiries from Australia and the UK from schools keen to join the pilot. We are incredibly excited in the rapid growth of Teacher Dashboard and are confident that this is just the beginning, with more tools, functionality and schools on the agenda.
