In education, best practice is grounded in both research and what is happening in real classrooms. For the past 15 years, Teaching Matters has led the way in the development and implementation of school-level educational innovations made possible by technology in the largest urban school system in America. Partnering with foundations, frontline educators, content experts, and technologists, we pursue a new standard for student success; one that strikes a balance between core academic and 21st century skills and prepares students for their futures.
The Role Our Donors Play
Our donors enable us to develop and test interventions that address the common challenges of our school partners. Each day, Teaching Matters works side by side with classroom educators. As such, we are uniquely situated to observe the real constraints that prevent schools from preparing students for success in the digital age. By focusing development to address the specific constraints and challenges of real classrooms, we improve the likelihood that schools will adopt innovations necessary to meet the needs of today’s students. We judge our success on how well a program or intervention resonates with educators, scales, and becomes a self-sustaining replicable model or resource.
