Smith - When You Have Powerful Data on Your Side, Change is No Longer a Dirty Word

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Innovating is actually easy for school leadership when data tells everything you need to know about your students, staff and leadership team.
Indigo has assessed over 10,000 students and 2,000 educational staff in the past year, and we know a lot about different school cultures and the educational landscape. For instance, high school girls are 27% more Motivated than boys to give back and help people unconditionally, while boys are 29% more Motivated by discrete goals and money; and GPAs are highly correlated to students’ Social-Emotional well-being; and 2 of the job ready skills that are least developed in the student population are Creativity and Leadership – but why?

This session will cover actual data analytics, observations and case studies from districts that are using the Indigo program to change their schools’ cultures by providing innovative ideas in and out of the classroom. Once disconnects between all the constituents in a school are isolated and understood, leaders can use data analytics to do what they really want: innovate. We will show exactly how data makes the change process seamless.

Participants in this session are strongly encouraged to take the Indigo survey before attending (provided for free, takes about 15 minutes). A comprehensive report is automatically emailed upon completion. Link: https://www.ttisurvey.com/329246HUN
