For twenty years Solution Tree has been advancing a collaborative data-driven approach to professional learning communities (PLC). Through a newly formed partnership with MasteryConnect, Solution Tree now has the technology solution to take their PLC work to the next level.

Founded by Richard and Rebecca DuFour, Solution Tree tools and resources are based on the principle that it requires collective effort and shared expertise to meet todays education challenges. Based in Bloomington, Indiana,  Solution Tree offers books, workshops, and onsite professional development on PLCs, RTI, effective teaching, and leadership development.

MasteryConnect supports an online community where teachers can share formative assessment.  A Salt Lake City startup, MasteryConnect gained widespread adoption with a Common Core apps.

Watch this short video to see how MasteryConnect supports PLCs.  It highlights the “shift from the grade to the learning.”

MasteryConnect will benefit from Solution Tree’s extensive outreach.  You’ll see MasteryConnect on the back page of the Solution Tree catalog distributed to U.S. schools.  You’ll see MasteryConnect at all 8 of the Solution Tree summer institutes.   The 170 Solution Tree associates that deliver 2600 days of profesional development will all receive training in the MasteryConnect solution.

The relationship is not a new one.  The founders of MasteryConnect were highly influenced by Solution Tree conferences.   Like Solution Tree, the MasteryConnect team knows it is critical to break down teacher isolation. They recognized the big challenge was sharing common assessments.
