Increase implementation fidelity of curriculum and prioritized instructional practices by providing concrete examples showcasing your own teachers
It’s no secret that recorded video examples of your own teachers supporting your own students can serve as a powerful tool for scaling high-quality instruction across content areas.
Give teachers voice and choice related to their professional learning
Individual teachers have different professional learning priorities based on what's actually happening in their classrooms.

Help coaches reach more teachers with less work
Video observation creates an opportunity for more flexible collaboration between teachers and coaches.
For example, when the teacher and coach set an action plan for change, the follow-up observation can be completed virtually. Edthena Video Coaching tools enable your coaches to support more teachers.
Understand what professional learning is happening through the lens of your strategic priorities
Districts ultimately measure success via student outcomes, but they set goals around curriculum implementation or specialized pedagogy programs in order to achieve those outcomes.
Edthena Video Coaching dashboards help you gain district-wide insights about the alignment of professional learning activities to the strategic goals. Because everything is tied to your frameworks and standards, you can now answer complex questions like "What types of feedback are teachers receiving?" related to your priority areas.
With video, teacher support is easier on staff and budgets
No matter how many coaches you can hire, there's often a gap between the desired amount of observation for teachers and the actual amount possible.
Edthena Video Coaching integrates into your existing processes for professional development to streamline feedback to teachers. It's possible for more professional learning with less need for substitutes and out-of-class time.

Designing and implementing micro-credential experiences allows you to offer educators choice in their learning opportunities.
Edthena Video Coaching makes it easy to build micro-credentials into your existing professional development process. School districts use Edthena for their ongoing instructional coaching and video observations, and offer micro-credentials, too.
