Teachers and administrators alike are using technology to improve student outcomes and bring their schools into the digital age. But this can result in too much data and not enough information with vital records housed in various formats across diverse systems. Districts need a way to access that high-value data and use it to track student progress, improve operational efficiency and meet government reporting requirements.
Dell™ Education Data Management (EDM), developed in collaboration with Intel, is an integrated technology solution that enables districts to capture, store and use actionable data.
With EDM, school districts can:
- Deliver longitudinal data systems: Districts can track student progress from prekindergarten through college and into the workforce.
- Personalize learning: Teachers can gain insight into the needs of individual students, take action to enhance and improve outcomes, and identify those who are at risk.
- Improve operations: Administrators can analyze academic, financial, HR and other institutional data, create more accurate reports and optimize operations.
- Foster teacher collaboration: Teachers can share information and work together to help students and improve teaching practices.
Key components of Dell’s EDM system include:
- Master data management/data governance: A set of processes and technologies that collect, store, integrate and distribute critical data across an organization’s information systems, applications and business processes. Disciplined governance ensures that data is of high quality.
- Data warehousing: A secure, integrated repository of district data designed specifically for querying and reporting.
- Education intelligence: A set of services that deliver data through role-based dashboards, scorecards and reports to impact instructional practices and business operations, while providing the basis for timely analytics and informed decisions.
- Education data portal: A self-service site for users to access and process the information they need, whenever and wherever they need it.
