Edthena Named Top EdTech Product of the Year by District Administration
There are MANY edtech products out there, and that’s why we are so excited to share that Edthena was named a 2022 Top EdTech Product of the Year by District Administration.
This annual award recognizes the most innovative solutions that are helping leaders meet the ever-evolving education technology needs of their districts and schools. For 2022, the Edthena Video Coaching platform was chosen as one of only fifteen products to earn the Top Edtech Product title.
A panel selected Edthena from more than 130 total products, judging submissions based on their innovation in the edtech space. Criteria included:
- how the edtech tools are breaking new ground
- how much value they add to education
- how intuitive they are for users
- if they deliver what they promise
The Edthena Video Coaching platform impressed the judges in all areas and was formally recognized at the Future of Educational Technology Conference in Jan. 2022.
“I like [Edthena Video Coaching] to improve PLCs,” said one judge. “It is also a great tool for coaches to leverage for one-on-one improvement plans with teachers.”
Districts can use the Edthena platform to support and streamline feedback to teachers using video observations and increased teacher-to-teacher collaboration.
Highlighted in our award-winning submission was our new feature to blur teaching videos. After easily and reliably uploading video to the platform, teachers can simply drag and resize rectangles onto their video to create a permanently blurred area that will appear in a new version of the video.
This feature is particularly useful for Zoom-style videos with student faces or names that cannot be shown or shared for privacy reasons.
To add to this recent excitement, we also announced last week our new AI Coach platform that will help schools and districts provide all teachers with supportive coaching.
This first-of-its-kind solution uses artificial intelligence to guide teachers through coaching cycles aligned to common growth areas.
We are committed to supporting educators in their professional learning and growth, and being named Top Edtech Product of 2022 by District Administration has solidified our drive even more. Stay tuned for more innovation to come.
