Welcome back to another episode of the Edumagic podcast. Today I have with me Aaron Quiggle from My Tap Track. This episode explores how you can make data collection delightful! You heard me correctly, delightful! Aaron shares his teaching story and how he was always a teacher at heart, has worked in several classrooms, and is now working for My Tap Track.
Know what type of data you are collecting first. Ask yourself
What are you looking for?
Which behaviors are you tracking
What does it look like?
Are you tracking behavior linked to instances, duration, or frequency count?
When you track data, you can drive instruction and make decisions regarding teaching. Teachers and educational leaders can use My Tap Track on their laptops, the app, and handheld devices to track data. The data can help drive teaching decisions and show student outcomes. My Tap Track can be used across the response to intervention levels, not just with students who have an IEP.
Analyzing data is delightful, especially when collaborating with others. You can share your My Tap Track information with family members, classroom teachers, doctors, therapists, and special education teachers. You can share the data with whoever you need to be involved in raising the student! Everyone in the team can see the behavior and track the data together! It takes a village to pull this off - what a game-changer!
