Closed-Loop Instructional System

Myth: Schools can improve student achievement by simply investing in the latest in computing devices and learning management systems.

Reality: To create meaningful advances in educational outcomes, schools need to introduce technology strategically across the entire educational ecosystem.

It’s critical to incorporate technology in consideration of—and in tandem with—educational objectives, standards, curricula, assessments, interventions, and professional development. BCG’s closed-loop instructional system provides a comprehensive roadmap for effectively and strategically integrating technology into the educational environment.

  1. Develop objectives. Identify clear goals, such as improving critical thinking, encouraging collaboration, and enabling synthesis.
  2. Develop strategies. Create relevant curriculum offerings that are high quality, timely, and technology-driven. Incorporate tools that enhance instruction and ensure alignment with standards.
  3. Deliver instruction. Look for ways to enable global reach as well as individual customization. Use a variety of methods and multiple channels, such as in-person teaching, virtual instruction, and blended learning.
  4. Assess results. Embed processes with ongoing, frequent assessment. Provide real-time feedback to students and teachers, and deliver deep insight into learning gaps in order to tailor improvements.
  5. Intervene appropriately. Provide adaptive, smart intervention based on assessment results. Act with immediacy using both automated and live instruction.
  6. Track outcomes. Real-time data can enable detailed analysis at multiple levels. The result is real-time feedback that educators and administrators can use to make decisions for instruction, future strategies, and resource planning.
