Edthena makes teacher growth visible,backed by data
Teachers record themselves in the classroom using any video camera.
Teachers upload video and securely share with a coach or group.
Others add feedback through timestamped comments.
Realize the full potential of online classroom observation with the right set of tools. Edthena empowers your teachers and your coaches to collaborate using videos of classroom teaching.
Our patented system allows teachers to see how individual comments shape the context of a full conversation. Quickly surface meaning that would otherwise stay hidden in plain text.
Turn evidence-based reflections into actionable next steps. Any comment can be turned into a Commitment, linked to your standards.
Edthena's video tools for macOS, Windows, and Chromebook, enable all teachers to upload video. No headaches, no compatibility issues.
Put the power of our video technology onto your iOS or Android mobile device. Easily record classroom video, and then automatically upload to Edthena.
With Edthena you get the best platform and leading security. Uploaded videos stay inside the platform, seen only by people who have been granted access. Edthena is also FERPA compliant.
We have saved tens of thousands of dollars on substitute costs and untold planning minutes lost from writing sub plans. Video peer coaching has shifted our culture.

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.

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.
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.
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.

"I've been waiting more than two decades for a technology platform to deliver on the full promise of how video can be used for teacher learning."
