Panorama hosted an EdWeek webinar on “Improving SEL with Measurement,” showcasing social-emotional learning at Fresno Unified School District, Woodridge School District 68, and Dallas Independent School District. Fresno USD Superintendent Michael Hanson, Woodridge 68 Assistant Superintendent Greg Wolcott, and Director of Operations Planning and Implementation Tricia Baumer at Dallas ISD shared learnings and strategies from their districts. Educators joined the conversation by live-tweeting the event with the hashtag #SELWebinar. Webinar participants shared photos, graphs, and, most importantly, their perspectives on improving social-emotional learning. Follow along with the live chat log via Storify!
The accessibility of Panorama’s surveys is an essential part of collecting accurate data for educators. I’m on the design team at Panorama, and recently we changed the typeface in our print and online surveys to improve readability. We switched to a new font called Castledown that’s designed especially for young readers and meant to be dyslexia-friendly. We are excited to share more about what makes a font more accessible to young readers, and about the design process at Panorama.
