With the goal of improving decisions made about technology in the classroom, the Monterey County Office of Education is sponsoring the use of the BrightBytes Clarity tool for school districts in Monterey County. Clarity is a platform designed to give school districts detailed information about the use of technology in their classrooms and community. In an effort to promote its use, the County Office will be subsidizing the cost of the tool for the first districts to sign-up until we reach 50,000 students. To learn more or express interest in bringing Clarity to your school district, use the links and resources below.
Watch the video of our May 5th Kickoff Event featuring an overview of Clarity from the BrightBytes staff and a Q&A from school districts currently using the platform.
BrightBytes Clarity is a highly-effective, online platform designed to provide schools with evidence-based data around the CASE framework, a holistic reporting mechanism that examines classroom technology use, access to technology in and out of school, attitudes toward technology usage, and technology skills of students, educators, and parents. It utilizes short, research-driven survey questions given to administrators, teachers, students, and parents/guardians and presents this information in an easy to read format. Results can be disaggregated in a number of different ways so that school officials can pinpoint where they need to target their next steps for intervention and development.
