Learn supports student academic achievement by providing high-quality professional learning experiences focused on teacher practice and school leader support of teacher development. Learn offers teachers and school leaders a holistic professional development experience, including a self-assessment of pedagogical strengths and growth areas, custom learning plans to support this professional goal-setting and action planning, and a rich array of self-paced and instructor-led resources, known as “Learning Opportunities (LOs).” Learn reaches the NYCDOE’s dynamic pedagogical contexts through differentiated, self-paced, and scalable resources to engage teachers and school leaders in specific questions and growth areas.
Learn provides New York City educators with a secure online platform for:
Learning Opportunities – Learning Opportunities (LOs) are professional development resources aligned to the Framework for Teaching and Common Core. Featured LOs include interactive education modules, videos, calibrated reports, facilitation guides, articles, and training decks.
Self-Assessments – Educators may take a self-assessment to identify pedagogical strengths and growth areas for each component in the Framework for Teaching. The self-assessment is designed to be iterative and reflective, and users are encouraged to retake and view progress over time.
Learning Plans – Learning plans facilitate collaboration between teachers and school leaders through the creation of professional development goals based on the growth areas identified in the self-assessment.
