Differentiate training and facilitate onboarding.

It’s difficult to manage employee training within my organization. It’s especially challenging to differentiate training and to facilitate timely training during the new-hire process.

We work closely with your organization to ensure that the objectives, materials, and assessments are aligned to your mission and provide a meaningful learning experience for your employees.

Take 1:1 to the next level and get focused on the learning process.

We have gone 1:1 and we want to better support the instructional efforts of our teachers. Sometimes it feels like technology is distracting from the learning process, rather than promoting it.

NextStep Solution

We understand that utilizing “technology for the sake of technology” is not effective and does not promote growth in the classroom. Our unique approach helps administrators, teachers, and students gain clarity on how devices can be used to promote rigor in the classroom and feel empowered to know when a tech-free learning experience is best.

Get and stay on top of Google Drive organization.

We struggle with organization. Staff members frequently complain that they have difficulty finding documents when they need them. For instance, the field trip forms, exam schedules, and grading policies were “shared” with all staff members, but somehow they seem to get lost in the “void.” Help!

NextStep Solution

There is a better way to keep administrative documents, policies, and procedures in one central place. Our curriculum team will work with your leadership team to develop a customized “one-stop-shop” where documents and information can be organized and accessed online with ease. We can be maintained and updated as needed by your staff or ours. Our curriculum department will strategize with you to maximize the benefits of this service for your unique needs!

Creating cohesion with common assessments and common course assignments.

In our district/school, we are working towards creating more cohesion with common assessments, but could use support in helping teachers utilize common assessments and common course assignments.

NextStep Solution

Our curriculum team is dedicated to supporting your district/school in developing more cohesion across courses and across grade-bands. We are ready to assist you by designing online courses in the LMS of your choice utilizing your district-adopted curriculum.

Online credit recovery courses and state assessment intervention.

In our school/district, we do all we can to support our students in achieving a successful learning outcome. However, for students who do not pass a class, we rely on credit recovery courses, serviced by a national provider. We are looking for a better option that is truly standards-based and aligned to the level of rigor demanded on state assessments.

NextStep Solution

Our curriculum strategist will work with your teachers to take the curriculum they use in class and develop an online credit recovery course using the LMS of your choice. The good news is that these courses can also be used as intervention for students that need to improve their performance on state assessments.

Differentiated toolset that aligns to OTES.

We have a technology-rich learning environment for students. Our teachers have various comfort-levels with technology. We are looking for a differentiated tool that is aligned to OTES that can meet each teacher where they are at with tech integration in the classroom.

NextStep Solution

Our curriculum team understands that teachers need personalized learning too. We have practical tools available to challenge each teacher to grow individually in the OTES rubric category of their need. These tools help to demonstrate how a teacher can integrate tech in the classroom in developing, skilled, and accomplished categories. These tools can be curtailed and customized as needed based on your district’s priorities, goals, and resources.

Developing tech skills necessary to prepare for AIR testing.

Our teachers are dedicated to preparing students for AIR testing. However, there are limited resources on the Ohio Department of Education’s website for students to use to develop the tech skills necessary to prepare for AIR testing.

NextStep Solution

While the NextStep team is not affiliated with AIR, we can work with your teachers to develop strategies to get your students comfortable with skills such as typing, using text-to-speech, equation editor, double-scroll, digital highlighting, digital annotation, etc. We understand that although students are often surrounded by technology, they are not always adept at using it in an academic context.

What is Expeditions?

Google Expeditions enable teachers to bring students on virtual trips to places like museums, underwater, and outer space. Expeditions are collections of linked virtual reality (VR) content and supporting materials that can be used alongside existing curriculum. These trips are collections of virtual reality panoramas — 360° panoramas and 3D images — annotated with details, points of interest, and questions that make them easy to integrate into curriculum already used in schools.

Google is working with a number of partners, including: WNET, PBS, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, the American Museum of Natural History, the Planetary Society, David Attenborough with production company Alchemy VR and many of the Google Cultural Institute museum partners to create custom educational content that spans the universe.
