Results Are In From SpotOn's Digital Content Partnership
SpotOn™ partnered with Oak Hills Local School District in Cincinnati, Ohio as part of the SpotOn Digital Content Partnership Program. The partnership brought together 30 district teachers who received training in SpotOn’s master rubric dimensions: Content Quality, Pedagogy, Technology, and Standards. The teachers learned to evaluate a different types of digital resources against SpotOn’s academically validated rubric, receiving feedback along the way. The partnership resulted in participants having greater confidence in choosing and evaluating digital classroom resources and felt the experience helped them to more effectively use digital resources to enhance the students’ learning and engagement, as well as sharpened the educators’ knowledge of content and standards.
It works! Case Study Shows Benefits of SpotOn's Resource Review Training

SpotOn engaged an independent research company to evaluate the impacts of the SpotOn program on participating educators. The evaluation found that educators working with SpotOn reported a greater confidence in using digital resources, a more informed content selection process, and increased student engagement.
