* Classroom Mosaic is a web-based app that
provides an easy, efficient, and secure way to
perform teacher observations. Observation
templates can be created to suit any schools
needs and instant feedback is provided to the
teacher. We also offer online tools for our users
to perform custom in-depth observation
analysis.
Basic Features of
Classroom Mosaic
*
* Because all of the tools are available on the
website, no additional software is needed.
Even if you don't have an iPhone or an iPad, our
website gives you all the functionality you
need to use all of the features of Classroom
Mosaic on any smart phone, tablet, laptop, or
desktop.
*
*
* The role-based login system allows for
observations to not only be performed by
principals and administrators but also by
department heads and other teachers.
*
* We provide the tools you need to easily import
all of your teachers and observers in a few
simple steps.
*
* Innovation: We want technology to work for
you, not against you. As technology progresses,
we strive to advance our system to help you.
* Support: We are completely committed to
helping all of our clients. Have questions? Need
our help? Email us.
* Clarity: We strive to provide information that
will allow you to easily analyze your
observations and identify your strengths and
weaknesses.
*
* Simplicity:
The interfaces have been created in
cooperation with educators like you. We strive to
create a product that is intuitive and can be easily
utilized by any user.
* Progress: The system provides many tools that we
believe will facilitate improvement in your school or
district. By utilizing the latest technology, our goal
is to allow administrators to spend less time filling
out paperwork and more time observing teachers in
the classroom. By providing teachers with quality
feedback, the educational experience for your
students can be enriched.
