Changing the Odds for Student Success: What Matters Most

During this presentation, McREL International will introduce the What Matters Most Framework. The What Matters Most Framework identifies those areas that, when addressed properly, are most likely to have positive effects on student access. Stated differently, they are high-leverage, high-pay-off areas for school systems. Briefly, the components of the framework, which we describe in the presentation are as follows: Guarantee challenging, engaging, and intentional instruction; Ensure curricular pathways to success; Provide whole-child student supports; Create high-performance school cultures; Develop data-driven, "high-reliability" systems.

High Tech Youth
The High Tech Youth is a network of afterschool studios that began in New Zealand and is expanding to include other countries in the Pacific region. These studios, their staff and the communities they serve are connecting both physically and virtually to share knowledge and collaborate on meaningful projects that promote their cultural and creative capacities. Staff from each of the studios in New Zealand, Samoa, Fiji and Hawaii meet online on a regular basis through video chats. They discuss projects, plan collaborations and share learning experiences. An online portal (The Haps) has been in use since 2006. This powerful tool for collaboration facilitates communication and the sharing of resources, skills, and ideas.
