Move beyond one-to-one digital content to leverage existing resources to deepen classroom conversations, engage students in accountable talk, and develop language skills including vocabulary, speaking, and listening.

In this research-driven webinar, Kevin Baird, Chairman at the nonprofit Center for College & Career Readiness, presented practical, pragmatic methods to use digital content in groups to drive deeper accountable conversations. Student-to-student talk is a critical element for accelerated language development, the foundation for reading comprehension and effective writing skills.

As schools move into the spring assessment window, increasing usage of existing tools while focusing on foundational language and comprehension skills is the key strategy to making a difference in student performance in a compressed timeframe.
