eProve Effective Learning Environments Observation Tool® (eleot®)
Sometimes understanding the big picture involves looking beyond the obvious. Sometimes getting to the root of strengths and weaknesses in the classroom requires asking strategic, in-depth questions and hearing honest answers. Are students immersed in positive learning experiences? Are they connecting content to real-life situations? How do they react to classroom rules and expectations? Are they willing to take risks with learning?
The AdvancED Effective Learning Environments Observation Tool (eleot), a learner-centric, formative tool, answers these questions and more by providing quantifiable data that focuses on students and informs improvement efforts to create the most optimal environments for student learning.
Effective Learning Environments
More than the building, desks and smartboards, an effective learning environment encompasses many of those previously intangible elements students need. Of course, kids may learn through a hole in the wall, but we assert that students learn better when surrounded by an environment that:
- Is equitable, supportive and well-managed
- Maintains high expectations
- Facilitates active learning and engagement
- Monitors student progress and provides feedback
- Promotes students' use of digital tools
