The Data Innovator's Mindset

21st century learning (often referred to as the 6Cs) recognizes that compliance and an emphasis on assessment of learning and evaluation will not foster innovation, encourage critical thinking, or inspire creativity—and those are the skills and competencies our students need to succeed.

In The Data Innovator’s Mindset, Anita Sherwin Hamer encourages teachers and administrators to empower their students to be lead learners engaged in their own assessment for learning. You’ll be inspired to:

  • Involve students in the classroom assessment process
  • Tap into the strengths as you develop lead learners in your school
  • Create ongoing opportunities for students setting goals, self-assessment, self-reflection
  • Seek more effective methods for measuring development and progress
  • Embrace innovation in assessment for learning and high yield practices as you adopt a Data Innovator’s Mindset.
