"iWalkObservation gives me the communication tool I've been seeking. It is quick, efficient and easy to use. The ability to apply it in a wide variety of learning contexts means that I'm able to offer meaningful feedback for both certified and classified staff alike. The ability to capture the moment with a camera shot, that is then embedded in the written feedback, is a real hit with my staff."
~Tim Smith, Principal, Hopkins Elementary, Sherwood SD, Sherwood, Oregon
"I got into it [iWalkObservation] this week with the new iPad. I'm already generating a lot of usable data! Thank you for delivering me from my clipboard!" ~ Ewan Brawley, Portland Public Schools, Oregon.
“I love the flexibility of iWalkObservation. I have customized my LookFors to include reflections or feedback about our building priorities and professional development. I feel it helps me and the teachers stay on target as we work together to improve our practice.” ~ Leslie O’Dell, Principal, Portland Public Schools, Oregon
“I purchased the tool a month ago, and am using it every day. It especially helps with feedback to teachers. In the past it was a chore to send out emails, or deliver feedback to teachers, but with this tool, the feedback is sent before I leave the room. Teachers have commented on how useful the feedback is, and I feel like I am being much more effective with my staff.” ~ Brian McCasline, Principal, Lincoln Middle School, South Lane, Oregon.
“I can't tell you how much I love this tool. It has totally changed the way I do walk-throughs and especially the way I communicate with my teachers. Now they know exactly what I was noticing for the 3 or 30 minutes I was in their rooms.” ~ Debbie Armendariz, Principal, Portland Public Schools
“It has been awesome to use this tool as I walk though classrooms. The immediate feedback is taking the effectiveness of the walkthroughs to a whole new level. Other administrators from the district are already beginning to ask about the program. Thank you for all the time and effort you have put into this program.” ~ Deven Grigg, Principal, Sunset Elementary School, Hermiston, Oregon.
“iWalkObservation has provided a way for me to walk through many classrooms and, at a glance, provide quick and meaningful feedback to my teachers and to notice trends regarding the way we educate children.” ~ Steve Emmert, Principal, Laurel Ridge Middle School, Sherwood School District
“I am a firm believer of working smarter not harder. The iWalkObservation Tool allows me to give meaningful observation notes to teachers as fast as I can type on my iPad. My teachers have appreciated the format in which they receive prompt feedback, that they find useful and meaningful . We are considering using it in our Professional Peer Observational Learning Groups.” ~ Jon Pede, Principal, Jackson Elementary School, Hillsboro, Oregon.
