The Technology Center for Teaching and Learning (TCTL) is the educational technology division of its parent organization, The Center: Resources for Teaching and Learning (The Center), a not-for-profit professional development and program support organization that has served pre-K-12 education for more than 40 years.
A primary goal of TCTL is to permit teachers and administrators to improve academic outcomes and to do more with less through the use of standard hardware and Internet technology to automate data collection and reporting for a wide range of school and public agency needs.
All TCTL technology systems are developed by educators, for educators, always at a much lower cost than comparable commercial systems, always with high levels of built-in usability.
Here are some of the reasons why the TCTL approach to data collection and analysis makes sense for most education and government applications.
Our systems are flexible
Our systems are standard – and customized
The customized part focuses on your specific data collection, reporting and analysis needs. The final product will look and act in familiar ways so that the learning curve is minimized.
Help is available as needed
We are exceedingly efficient
Our process is thorough
If we can’t help, we’ll tell you so. If we can, we’ll develop a first-level application, including the data collection software, synchronization software and web site, for your review and for preliminary piloting by a small number of your staff.
Pilot users and your designees will form a focus group to evaluate the pilot and recommend improvements to the system. A second, larger pilot will be conducted with the improved system. Once again, users and the focus group will tell us, in detail, about improvements they would like to see.
Only after those steps are completed and new revisions are made do we move the application into the hands of a broader user group.
Training is included!
