Research Institution

eSpark is a website that provides teachers curated playlists of tablet-based apps, videos, and assessments tailored to students’ individualized learning needs. In this project, the research team is developing a prototype of eSparkBeat, a dynamic dashboard to provide teachers useful content and resources tailored to particular classroom foci to improve instruction. The intended users of eSpark will be K-8 teachers. . The prototype will include resources to support implementation. In the Phase I pilot research, the team will examine whether the prototype functions as planned, if teachers are able to integrate it within the classroom environment, and whether students are engaged with the prototype, including its content and resources.
