Diane Lauer

Director of Professional Development
St. Vrain Valley School District

While we have used video with Northwestern University student teachers for many years, we have not previously had a systematic way for students to share videos with instructors or for instructors to share videos with students.

Miriam Sherin

Director of Undergraduate Education
Northwestern University

As a teacher, it is really easy to allow certain interactions to affect your perception of yourself in the classroom — both good and bad. With feedback from my coach, I was able to not only to focus on the positive aspects of my teaching, but also recognize specific areas where I can improve.

Taylor Williams

Math Teacher

Video coaching assists in supporting teachers to dig deeper with reflective practices as they view themselves. The ability to stop, comment, reflect, and converse through this application truly allows both coach and coachee to learn from the process.

Tanya Sadler

District Coach

Conversations that would have only taken place if initiated by a coach during a formal PLC meeting are now taking place between teachers across grade-levels and departments. Teachers are now giving each other feedback that pushes everyone to improve their practice. This has been transformative for the entire school.

Amanda Huza

Principal
Equality Middle School

As both a peer coach in my old elementary school and as a coach of pre-service teachers in all stages of teacher education, I often made word-for-word, scripted notes to try and “capture” a teaching event. Transitioning to using video with Edthena has drastically changed the depth and quality of my coaching.
