Which Applications Need PD Support?
CatchOn’s My Applications tab is a great starting point for analyzing application usage for which you may want to consider PD opportunities. At the top of this list, you can filter both by tags (including your assigned district tags) and categories. For example, if your curriculum team is planning Math PD, they can consider math applications to add to the training.
After applications are selected, the Usage Trend Graph can give you a quick overview of unique users for these applications over any time frame for as long as you have been collecting data in CatchOn. You can even break down usage at different campuses in your district to determine if you should only offer PD to teachers at certain schools.
Along with My Applications, creating a custom dashboard focused on applications you are monitoring for PD purposes can be helpful.
To create a new dashboard, click the “Create New Dashboard” button in the top right corner of the dashboard page, and then populate your dashboard with any of CatchOn’s widgets to give insight into usage around the district. If you would like assistance with creating dashboards, please contact your Customer Success Manager who is happy to assist.
Remember that all of CatchOn’s widgets can be exported as an image file, pdf, csv, or to Google Sheets so you can easily include the usage data in your PD slide decks.
Finally, don’t forget to monitor CatchOn after PD is complete to see how training impacts usage in the new school year.
