iCountBetter maintains a child-friendly navigation system, with a login that allows teachers and parents to track progress. An on-line reporting system is planned for teachers, which will give them easy access to a handy snapshot of the progress of all the students in their classes.
14 “rooms” are completed, of the 15 rooms that will eventually constitute the fullprogram. The 15th room, which is on the highest level, should be available late fall.
Jody Imbimbo, our grant independent evaluator, visited many partner school classrooms last spring. She gathered data on the use of iCountBetter and students’ and teachers’experiences with the app. She incorporated that information in her 2nd Year Grant Evaluation Report, which is available through the Findings and Reports drop-down link.
Our first 3rd Year training session has been conducted at both PS 111 and CS 112.
Shetal Shah, our expert consultant on the use of technology in schools, remains available to meet with our partner school teachers individually or in small groups. She also can visit classes in either school. If you work at our partner schools and want to meet with Shetal or ask her a question, email her at: firstname.lastname@example.org
