Teacher Professional Development and Rewards Program

Why Digitability 2

Teacher Professional Development and Rewards Program

Professional Development, Training & Coaching

Understanding the needs of teachers and their support staff, Digitability provides personalized support and training to all parties involved in each student’s education. Digitability provides an array of support and coaching services to support teachers, including on-demand video modeling, virtual and in-classroom coaching, data analysis, and evaluation of teacher mastery in evidence-based practices

Evidence-based Practice Training to Support Student Transition

Unlike many service providers, Digitability’s innovative model has the unique capacity to train, service and coach teachers and administrators at schools throughout the School District at scale. The award-winning model empowers teachers with evidence-based practices and systematically measures each teacher’s baseline mastery level in principles of Applied Behavior Analysis.Rather than delivering intense training all at once, Digitability scaffolds professional development and delivers training and coaching to teachers incrementally throughout their implementation of Digitability. Digitability utilizes the same principles of Applied Behavior Analysis to motivate and reinforce teacher mastery (including a point system with rewards). This ensures that teachers retain training and are able to generalize or transfer the use of these evidence-based practices throughout their practice and not just when implementing Digitability.

Digitability has formatted and scripted every lesson plan to include built-in training in the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis. Some of these principles include but are not limited to the following selection of instructional targets that have direct outcomes to improve student behavioral success.

Digitability’s Professional Development Intervention Protocol

Teachers come to the Special Education Classroom with a wide-range of training and experience. Some teachers will demonstrate proficiency using the program and its evidence-based practices immediately (Runners). While other teachers may need some support to begin to feel comfortable with a new program (Joggers). There will always be a group of teachers who need more intense support or interventions (Walkers). 

Digitability has a support protocol for all levels of experience and motivation.  Digitability uses an iterative process that includes the following component steps:

  • Evaluation
  • Plan Creation
  • Assessment
  • Intervention (if necessary)
  • Plan Augmentation (if necessary)

Evaluation: Digitability uses pre-assessment tools to gain an understanding of teacher experience with evidence-based practices, such as Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), and then uses that data-gathering process to create a plan tailored to that individual teacher.

Plan Creation: Understanding the needs and tendencies of teachers and their support staff, Digitability then provides personalized, tailored support and training to all involved in each student’s education so as to maximize student outcomes by establishing S.M.A.R.T. goals.

Assessment: Digitability’s methods and ease of use make all teachers feel comfortable with technology and increase their use of evidence-based practices, such as the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis. Tracking this data informs either the Intervention stage of Digitability’s process or empowers the entire team to move said teacher onto the next milestone in the program.

Intervention (if necessary): Digitability provides an array of support and coaching services, including on-demand video modeling, virtual and in-classroom coaching, data analysis and evaluation of teacher mastery in evidence-based practices.

Plan Augmentation (if necessary): With a clarified understanding of teacher tendencies and growth areas, Digitability’s Implementation Coach provides modified and personalized support and training to all involved in each student’s education.

Support communication protocols for all teachers and Digitability Implementation Coaches (ICs).

Implementation Fidelity is essential for student progress toward their work-ready goals. Depending on the professional development needs of the teacher, Implementation Coaches may schedule periodic and/or ongoing 1:1 phone calls or webinars with individual teachers in need of support and coaching. If a Digitability Implementation Coach is unable to reach a teacher after three (3) attempts within one week, we will contact the identified school-based administrator to help us schedule a conference call with that teacher and their admin within the next five (5) school days. Each call will include time-bound next steps/deliverables for the teacher. Progress will be reported in quarterly administrator reports.

Support your teacher’s implementation of Digitability using our Observation Rubric. Digitability’s Observation Rubric can be used to assess teacher usage of evidence-based practices. This tool will help your team identify current levels of fidelity and help your teachers increase their impact and outcomes for students.
