SCALE LEARNING & ASSESSMENT

Practice is an interactive video platform used by organizations to scale

the development of skills that require practice to learn and demonstration to assess.

HOW IT WORKS

1

FREQUENT PRACTICE

Learners watch a brief practical skills challenge. Learners then record a video with their responses, and in the process, practice their skills multiple times.

2

PEER INTERACTION

Learners watch their peers’ responses, review them, and leave timestamped feedback; and by doing so learners create a social and interactive learning environment that scales assessment.

SELF REFLECTION

Learners reflect on their responses juxtaposed to a model video response and in the process engage with what may otherwise be a passive talking head video.

COACHING & MENTORING

Instructors provide general feedback to the group, and learners receive individualized, meaningful feedback from their peers and instructors.

AUTHENTIC ASSESSMENT

Practice makes authentic assessment possible – the type of assessment that can only be captured through demonstration, not through knowledge based exams – for instructors to easily assess and track development within a competency-based framework.

  • “Practice is not only my favorite evaluation tool in my courses, but also the easiest, and most enlightening assignment to grade. It gave me, the instructor, insight into student learning. I have changed my approach to the students based on their feedback about the Practice assignment, and I have improved as an educator.”

    Carol Okupniak, Professor
    Drexel University College of Nursing and Health Professions

  • “Practice provides and excellent opportunity for my students to crystalize and review concepts we have gone over in class in a way that requires them to look at messy facts and decide what advice makes sense. It provides an effective way to develop skills that we don’t always do in class.”

    Brian Quinn, Associate Dean of Experiential Learning
    Boston College Law School

  • “We use it everywhere. We use it to train teachers on how to get students to come to attention without demanding that they come to attention. We even us it in gym class and music class. We have had 100% participation in the training program with Practice. The platform is amazing. It’s easy to navigate through and teacher friendly.”

    Sherise Griffin, Elementary School Teacher
    Newark Public Schools

  • “Practice has been a great tool for our organization. It allows our staff and team members from locations all across the United States to learn from each other and practice their skills.”

    Laura Kimbrough, Director of Education & Development
    Ruth’s Chris Hospitality Group

HOW ORGANIZATIONS ARE USING PRACTICE

  • slide-logo1

    Boston College Law School’s professors wanted to give all of their students an opportunity to practice the skills and theories that they were learning in class. They also wanted students to interact with and learn from each other, and a network of experts, in order to create a greater sense of community within the classrooms. Online discussion boards and course builders helped students communicate with each other, but did not fix the disconnect between the classroom and real world application.

    Drexel’s nurse educators wanted to reach more students with simulation, but scale alone wasn’t enough. They wanted a solution that would engage students, particularly those in Drexel’s nationally recognized online and blended programs. Like many online programs, Drexel was limited by the tools available to its instructional designers: text, video, and drag and drop or multiple choice-style activities. Drexel needed a solution that would facilitate a level of interactivity with classmates and colleagues, and strengthen their skills.

    Newark Public Schools, like many public schools with limited resources, struggles with finding ways to engage and develop their novice teachers. These teachers were the foundation of the schools’ staff and without much formalized professional development, NPS had become one of the lowest performing districts in the State of New Jersey. The district had a strong desire to utilize the expertise of more experienced teachers in their own professional development, while also engaging the entirety of the staff.

    Ruth’s Chris Hospitality Group wanted a more effective way of training their employees without incurring the high costs associated with face-to-face training. By using Practice, Ruth’s Chris connected their geographically dispersed staff and leveraged local expertise throughout the company. By capturing and highlighting best practices, Ruth’s Chris increased morale since they started using Practice to meet their training needs.

SEEN AND HEARD

  • What’s the Real Cause of the Skills Gap?

    While job openings are abundant in America, employers are not hiring. Why does this gap exist? Many argue employers are not hiring because high schools and colleges are failing to prepare students with the skills necessary for today's workforce.

  • Hello From the Other Side

    How can videos be leveraged to yield better learning? With video at the core of our platform, we are constantly researching and thinking about how we can better leverage video. Over the years, we’ve amassed a good amount of information on the topic. This month we collected some of the more interesting things we’ve found on video learning and shared them in this post.
