Clarity for Schools

Is an online platform that helps schools determine the impact of technology on student learning. The framework provides a medium for all stakeholders to establish a common understanding of technology use by examining the

  • measurement of student and teacher access to technology at school and at home
  • teacher and student skills
  • factors in the school environment, such as relevant policies and administrative support.

All three areas converge to produce the results in the classroom, which closely examines both teacher and student use of specific technologies for various types of learning. The framework is used to derive qualitative and quantitative analyses provided by the Clarity of Schools platform, helping educators determine the links between their school's technology use and student learning outcomes.

The CASE framework powers the BrightBytes Technology & Learning Module, which assesses an organization's capacity for technology and provides personalized recommendations for improvement. By adding the SAMR Lens, you can now zoom in on the extent to which teachers are using that capacity to transform learning. Adding the SAMR Lens will allow district and campus leaders to do the following:

  • Instantly connect relevant research and analysis from BrightBytes Labs to both SAMR and the CASE framework to ensure that you are seeing the most actionable information.
  • Define levels of sophistication of technology use from basic replication and the digitization of 20th-century practices to true 21st-century learning.
  • Target professional learning opportunities that help staff move along the SAMR continuum from Substitution and Augmentation to Modification and Redefinition.
  • Guide change at the building and district level by implementing initiatives that have the highest instructional impact on the widest number of teachers.
