Michigan State University (MSU) is tackling the tough problem of improving student field experiences. This top-ranked teacher education program pairs four hours per week of field experience with their elementary methods courses. This pairing better prepares pre-service teachers because students can practice what they learn in their methods courses. But it’s difficult to observe 200 students each semester. That’s why MSU’s College of Education turned to GoReact to record and improve student field experiences.

Achieves CAEP Standards
"This is the first piece of education technology that has actually made my life easier."
"Having timestamps, grading, and feedback in one location in more efficient and effective."
"Several CAEP Standards ask for evidence. With tools like GoReact, we can show that now."
MSU is expanding GoReact to fifth-year students completing their yearlong internship. They’re also starting to use GoReact in arguments written in accreditation reports and dissertation studies. The program looks forward to finding just how much potential GoReact has for teacher education. According to Kelly Hodges, the program’s Curriculum Development Specialist, “Instructors from the secondary program are already asking when they get to use GoReact.”
