Our Vision + Yours

ONE GOAL

This isn’t just another “K-12” initiative; this is something different.

If you’ve been around education lately you might have heard that students today are missing out on something essential to their future. What exactly is it? It’s known as “21st Century Skills”.

The use of technology in today’s classrooms has great potential to improve. Many educators find themselves employing digital tools to display information on the screen or similar items that only substituted their previous method. We’d like to politely ask, what use is it for students to regurgitate information without thinking about the topic first and then analyzing what they’ve come across? Better yet, how do these strategies prepare students for their global future?

To be prepared for tomorrow, we at BrightMinds Connect have found a balance between the past, present and future. We feel it’s utterly important to help schools continuously improve by getting the most out of their students through safe and informed practices. To make this happen, we advocate for whole school approaches that lead to customized program development and implementation that can initiate the process of school reform in the 21st century.

At Bright Minds we work with instructors, curriculum leaders,  academic research through Google Apps for Education to develop dynamic classroom experiences that cultivate curiosity and divergent thinking. We use a series of analytics to help you set goals, track them and most importantly evaluate the progress of your program no matter the innovation you’re interested in.

Model & Philosophy

HOW WE THINK ABOUT EDUCATION

Vision1

Revised TPACK Model

This academically founded model is a framework that considers the three major components of teaching and learning as visible above; it will inform the practices and approaches by BrightMinds Connect.

 Our conversations are rooted here

From everything we do to everything we say; it starts here! The importance of considering the tools and competencies we need to enable learners has become ever more critical in today’s world. This why we feel this philosophy will be a process that allows us and you to see the fruits of your labour.

Why Now?

Our Framework

WHAT WE DO & HOW WE GET IT DONE

gearsBig

 

We help you determine where your program is and where you want it to go.

Questions we ask: How can we improve student outcomes? What current tools do you have at your disposal? Is there a particular budget you are working with? How is technology currently being used at your school? How do you measure success? How does your vision and mission align with your goals? How can whole school improvement become a reality?

We use our research-informed audit to plan and build the program of your choice. We take into consideration your context because no two place are alike. Whether it’s technology you’re interested in or a new innovation we work to make it happen.

The Goal? Improving student outcomes.

Planning change is a process. Keeping this in mind we used the assessment stage to map out specific priorities and targets that come in the form of an action plan. We work with you each step of the way to ensure what you need out of the program is the track we are headed towards. Timelines, target dates and resources all become a part of the conversation as we continuously check-in to ensure we are improving while considering hows Google Apps for Education fit.

As a part of our philosophy, we work integrate components of deeper learning such as inquiry based and project based strategies into our planning to ensure your program is engaging and thought-provoking. Here’s the fun part, whenever possible we make use of the Google Apps and EdTech you possess and make the most out of them. We also provide suggestions for other digital tools and organic ways of learning; we always work around what you have at that very moment as it’s all customized for you and your environment.

What makes us different? We don’t make gut-reaction decisions, we let the analytics do the work.

We use our Bright Minds philosophy to prepare educators to meet your organizational goals

What? This is where we follow through with our plan and execute. We begin to fulfill the requirements of the program and continue with periodic reviews; essentially it’s time for rhetoric into reality.  We do this all according to your governing standards and beyond so it fits right in with what your currently doing but pushes the envelope to guide your staff to the next level where they can flourish.

How? We use a variety of activities, materials and methods to diligently prepare educators with transformative tools to enhance student outcomes

Data runs the world, we believe this. Through the use of analytics and an implementation analysis we evaluate the process; are things going according to plan? How can adjustments be made?

Making use of formative assessment options we employ research strategies to gain feedback and continue building, it’s our way of letting you know we’re here to help and make informed decisions.
