WHY DO
YOU NEED
EDTHENA?

Observation and feedback is expensive

Direct observation and feedback is a key lever for educator improvement, but it’s extremely resource intensive to do in person.

Bring the process online using video

Edthena brings observation and feedback online through recorded videos and specialized collaboration tools.

EDTHENA IS A COLLABORATION PLATFORM FOR IMPROVEMENT

Edthena is a safe place for help

without worry that videos will be used in an evaluative manner. There can be expectations for follow-through, but what's tracked for accountability purposes is the collaboration process itself. It's like formative assesment rather than summative.

Edthena works well in any context

from school of education to public school. Rather than expensive customizations for individual partners, our features are carefully designed to accommodate a variety of coaching styles and content.

EDTHENA ENABLES COACHING ANYTIME, ANYWHERE

How we started

Edthena was born from on-the-ground experience with challenges accessing and providing the right types of support at the right times. As an organization, we are rooted in the perspectives of being an educator. This informs everything we do from feature design to client partnerships. We fundamentally believe that technology can and should play a part in affecting positive change in the education system.
