ESU Coordinating Council Innovation Grant: 

The Data-Driven Ecosystem Enhancing Teaching And Improving Learning for Students (DE2TAILS)

The Data-Driven Ecosystem Enhancing Teaching And Improving Learning for Students (DE2TAILS) project will enable ESUCC to incorporate multiple on-line educational and data-collection systems into one statewide, secure, single sign-on portal. The goal is to develop, implement, and sustain an integrated ecosystem, governed by policies and practices, to allow relevant teaching and learning applications and tools to integrate; sharing data elements for the improvement of student learning and reporting. Objectives: 1) Develop an integrated technology ecosystem through a secure, trusted data infrastructure (ADVISER) by integrating multiple technology systems through a secure single sign-on portal; 2) Design an integrated system application for the AAP and SRS with ADVISER to address the needs of at-risk and high needs students; 3) Use technology to innovate student learning in the classroom and improve academic/employment outcomes through a BlendED/Personalized Learning Environment; 4) Provide a baseline collection of online digital resources for student access improving college and career readiness through NROC/EdReady; and 5) Develop statewide software (SIMPL) for visualization and rapid analysis of evidenced-based professional development and instructional practice to inform decision making.

Secure hosting infrastructure and software development and enhancements will integrate applications and tools to share data elements. Enhancements will provide data for school districts and ESU’s to track the effectiveness of service delivery through continuous quality improvement.

The core of this innovative ecosystem includes quality tools, resources, and data provided to classrooms statewide designed to meet the personalized learning needs of every teacher, every student, every day.
