We Are Dataworks

DataWORKS Educational Research was founded in 1997 with the single purpose of improving student learning.  By observing and teaching in more than 25,000 classrooms, co-founders Dr. Silvia Ybarra and John Hollingsworth developed the research-based Explicit Direct Instruction (EDI) approach to teaching. DataWORKS is steadily expanding, working with over 750 schools and districts, in 25 states, and in 10 countries.  Since 2014, the company has been actively involved in training and developing curriculum for teachers and schools in Australia and the United States of America.
