Teacher Time Savers: Stations

by Joyce Cullop and Alicia Pruitt on January 13, 2016

At Istation, we recognize that no resource is more valuable to a teacher nor as hard to find! as time.

There are several key components to Istation that make it a valuable time-saving tool:

  1. Formative assessments allow precise measurements and seamless placement for every student. Given automatically each month (or more often if desired), these assessments show true growth over time for each user.
  2. With Istation’s adaptive curriculum, students are given purposeful instruction with interactive lessons that are explicit and direct.
  3. In addition to computer-driven lessons, teachers have access to a digital library of lesson plans and interactive teaching tools. The Priority report alerts teachers of struggling students and recommends lessons for them.
  4. Istation equips teachers with immediate online reports to help manage personalized data profiles.
  5. Additional support comes through the Istation school and home connection.

Last week, we discussed resources teachers could use to add greater instructional value to morning work while also saving themselves time. This week, we’re highlighting resources that can save time during stations and center time.
