Elevating Student Experiences to Build Equitable Learning Environments and Outcomes Together: Learn How to Utilize a Free Research-Based Survey to Highlight and Support 6th-12th Grade Student Voices

Breakout Session - October 25, 2021 | 2:30-3:30pm ET

Research shows that certain academic experiences foster students’ motivation, engagement, and success, while other experiences hinder them. Come learn about PERTS (Project for Education Research That Scales) free evidence-based tool, Copilot-Elevate, created to help systematically build an equitable, student-centered culture that inspires and supports student success. Hear from educators, administrators, and students who have utilized the tool and how it has impacted their classroom experience.

Session Learning Outcomes:

  1. Learn about the experiences young people need to develop into engaged learners and citizens—and the role of those experiences in educational equity.
  2. Learn about free resources that educators can use to systematically improve young people’s experiences in school.
  3. Consider how you could leverage widely available, evidence-based tools and approaches to build equitable, student-centered learning environments.
