Too much professional development is one-size-fits-all.
How it Works
Virtual coaching uses video to bring expert coaches to your classroom for tailored, trusted feedback. It's useful because it's yours.
You’ll be matched with an experienced coach who knows your subject, and who will get to know you. Together you’ll decide how coaching can best support your classroom.
UPLOAD YOUR VIDEO
Using a smartphone, video camera or webcam, you’ll record a 20-minute video of a lesson and upload it to the online portal. Remember, your lesson doesn't need to be "perfect.”
REVIEW YOUR FEEDBACK
Within a few days, your coach will send you feedback on your lesson, embedding small, practical action steps that you can use in class the next day directly in your video.
CREATE A PLAN
After you've had time to reflect on your video feedback, you and your coach will debrief by phone. You will review the lesson and practice using a new technique in your own words and your own way.
“I really appreciated the professional demeanor and specific feedback from my coach. It was one of the greatest assets to my teaching this year.”– Participating Teacher
Our virtual coaches are great coaches because they were great teachers first. Coaches have first-hand knowledge of your subject area and grade level. They can figure out what’s taking things off track, and offer simple techniques to use right away.
