PL Module Feedback Popup

PL Module Feedback Popup

Moving forward, the first time a user enters the MT PL page after completing a module, they'll be given a popup asking if they'd like to provide feedback on the module. They have the option to take a  5-question survey, provide a written response, or decline. This prompt will occur after each module is completed, hopefully providing the MT team with useful feedback over the coming months!

Work Product Improvements

We released a small update today that allows DCF Managers, Driver Owners, and SI Owners to delete and replace existing Work Products in their SIs.

Assigning Module in SI 32 & 50

Assigning Module in SI 32 & 50

As an enhancement to the recent ability to assign Coaches and School Leaders in SI 32 and SI 50, you can now also assign the "Instructional Coaching" and "Change Management for School Leaders" modules without having the users count in the PL SI stats. Just select the new "Assign Module" option in these SIs. See the updated support article on "PL Stats in Success Indicators" for details. 

Module for School Leaders Tracked in SI 50 & 63

Module for School Leaders Tracked in SI 50 & 63

You can now assign principals and other school leaders in SI 50 to give them access to the new "Change Management for School Leaders" module. Similar to coaches in SI 32, the school leaders' progress on the module will be tracked in SI 50 and also in SI 63. Additionally, we greatly reduced the load time of the National Network map and list - enjoy!

Individual Stats in PL SIs

Key Strategic Milestones Update

Today we released an update to the Key Strategic Milestones section of the District Portfolios. Now, a progress bar appears at the top of the section with the district's status on each of the 6 SIs. Hovering provides the full SI title, SI Owner, and clarification on if a Work Product has been added and shared, added but not shared, or not added. 

New Features for PL Goals Page & SCORM Tiles

New Features for PL Goals Page & SCORM Tiles

Two new features were released today. You can now visualize your personal progress on the district's goals with progress bars and status icons on the District PL Goals page. Additionally, you can now see information on SCORM Tiles in the Modern Teacher modules, noting how many times the tile has been viewed, how much time has been spent on it, and the score (if applicable). By default, both of these features show your individual information, but when using the Coaching View, the goal stats and SCORM info will reflect your selected user.

New UI for Likes & Comments

New UI for Likes & Comments

Based on a feature request, we have updated the display of likes and comments in the News Feed and Discussion area of the Dashboard and SI Pages. You can now more easily see the users who have liked an item, and you can preview the first 3 comments without having to open the comments popup.

National Network & District Portfolios

National Network & District Portfolios

Drag & Drop

Drag & Drop

Good news - now, any time you add a Work Product, SI Resource, PL Attachment, etc., you have the option to drag/drop the file instead of clicking and adding it from your finder. Check it out and let me know if there are any questions!

This will export those stats to a CSV with each users' status on the selected module(s). Enjoy!

PL Stats in SIs

PL Stats in SIs

Professional Learning stats are now being tracked in SIs! Once the district's custom PL Goals are set in SI 31, teacher progress on each of the four goals will appear in SI 53 and up. Also, SI 32 can now be used to assign the district's coaches, giving them access to the Instructional Coaching module and tracking their progress on it. If you'd like to complete this module, please assign yourself as a coach in SI 32. See the new support article for more details, and reach out if you have any questions!

A few new updates today - the "Architect Procedures for the Modern Learning Environment" module is now available just below the Digital Learning Environment module, and all Pre-Assessments and Literacy Checks are in the process of being revised this week based on early user feedback. Ask Laura if you'd like access to the quiz answer keys.

Also, a new "Your Resources" filter is available in the Resource Library, allowing you to easily find any resources you have uploaded and shared in the platform, both from PL and DCF pages. 

Goal Cycle Page

Goal Cycle Page

The Product team has been hard at work on the new Goal Cycle page, which is due for release today! Please see the updated support article on Goal Cycles for a new video tutorial and helpful information.

The team is also planning to release a feature today to distinguish Modern Teacher modules from district-created modules on the District PL Goals page, and they're hard at work on the Stats in SIs and National Network features. Reminder that mockups are available here.

Ability to Deactivate Users

Ability to Deactivate Users

Today we released the ability to deactivate users, which will remove their platform access while retaining all of their work in the platform (discussion comments, tasks created, resources shared, etc.). Users Managers can reactivate a deactivated user at any time. For more details, see the updated support article on managing district users.

Stages & Drivers View of DCF

Stages & Drivers View of DCF

Good news - we've just released another enhancement to the DCF. When in the default Grid View, you can now click on a Driver or Stage to access a list of all the SIs in that Driver or Stage. Click again to return to the basic Grid View. Note this new view is also compatible with our options to view and edit the Goal Cycle.

List View of DCF

List View of DCF

It's here! The new List View of the DCF is now available. You can now view all SIs as a list, search by keyword, and filter by Stage, Driver, Status, Owner, and Goal. Check it out and let me know if you have any feedback. Note that a new animation of it is available in the support center article on the DCF.

We also released updates to the Comparison Stats on Dashboard that excludes all users with DCF access from counting in the overall School. Cohort, or District totals. Users can be edited to count if they need to. To keep the stats looking busy, this change does not apply to our demo Wright district.
