During the segment, Kathy Ireland interviews Learning Sciences CEO, Michael Toth.
Michael Toth begins by speaking about what schools can do to make a major and immediate difference to students. In analyzing high-performing classrooms, he says, one thing that has become clear to the company is that the most effective teachers are the ones who consistently monitor for evidence of student learning. Educators who do this, he adds, “can have as high as a 50-percent increase in student achievement.”
He goes on to discuss what his company is doing to improve teachers’ use of monitoring techniques and ultimately impact learning. “There’s been a national shift to a more rigorous academic standards,” he explains, and today’s teachers must ensure that students can go beyond demonstrating an understanding of content—students must also be able to apply their knowledge to more cognitively complex tasks. “To do that, we have to really get kids working in collaborative teams with the content,” says Toth. “These classrooms are very, very engaged. Kids are able to operate at this level of critical thinking.”
