Last week, teachers from KIPP Bay Area Schools were  recognized in an Edsurge article titled: “When Teachers Build Edtech, Awesomeness Ensues—and Here’s Why”. Written by Alex Hernandez, the column’s message is that students win when teachers are the ones building ed tech, and it features some great quotes, tools, and data from KIPP Bay Area classrooms.

KIPP Bay Area School’s Innovation team *loves* to share what we’ve learned. Below is a link to the mild, medium, and super picante resource page we created for our teachers last year. This page includes links to the playlist tool for 2nd-5th grade and 6th-12th grade.

We’re thrilled and grateful for the recognition, and want to note that work is currently being done to further develop our tool into a world-class feature. In the meantime, we’re excited to share the resources for others looking to further personalize their instruction.

 

 

 

 

Footnote: 

*”Productive innovation depends on two factors: (1) an organization’s capacity for efficiently replacing innovation uncertainty with knowledge, and (2) its ability to scale up innovation outcomes by enhancing its organizational effectiveness. Innovation and scaling thus work together to form an overall social impact creation process.” <https://ssir.org/articles/entry/when_innovation_goes_wrong>
