3 Ways District Leaders Can Evaluate, Validate, and Communicate the Efficacy of Remote Learning Programs

Superintendents and district leaders bear an enormous amount of responsibility.

In today’s ever-changing environment, the amount of worries keeping them up at night run the gamut, including—but certainly not limited to—student access to remote learning tools, the constant threat of data theft, and the justification of technology expenditures to internal and external stakeholders.

Here are three critical ways CatchOn empowers superintendents to evaluate, validate, and communicate the efficacy of their remote and hybrid learning strategies:


Detect the Digital Divides

Not all Internet access is created equal. Knowing which students are engaging with their online resources, especially in a virtual learning environment, is key to identifying which ones may need hotspots or some other extra help.

CatchOn gives you detailed reporting on student-level engagement, meaning you can identify in real time when intervention is required to correct current courses of action and address inequities, declining student engagement, and achievement gaps.


Safeguard Critical Student Data

According to K-12 Cybersecurity Resource Center, there were 348 publicly-disclosed cyber incidents last year in education—that’s more than three times the number of similar incidents in 2018.  Applications developed with less than stellar privacy policies and data security protocols pose a serious threat to your students’ sensitive (and very valuable) personal information.

The CatchOn platform gives district leaders the power to ask for identification from apps as well as see the software applications students are using on their school devices—both inside and outside the classroom. Administrative teams can now quickly diagnose dangerous apps before they become a serious threat.


Validate Technology Efforts to Taxpayers

Superintendents excel at understanding what their districts require and creating action plans that will meet those needs. Unfortunately, communicating the efficacy of those measures and validating the ROI of technology purchases to taxpayers has historically been a herculean task.

CatchOn transforms hours of manual research and data compilation into a few clicks. Through customizable dashboards and easy-to-use automated reports, superintendents can quickly produce and disseminate updates on student-level engagement, device usage, and a host of other metrics that enable leaders to measure the ROI of their technology investments.
