The Teaching Channel Platform provides teachers with immediate instructional coaching and peer feedback, virtually.

“As an instructional coach, my transition into this new territory has looked vastly different from what I would be experiencing as a teacher. In my coaching role, students are still my top priority, but I have to filter that through teachers. Meeting virtually in instructional teams allows my teachers to work through the process together, sharing expertise and ideas prompted by the training.”

Obstacles in Instructional Coaching During Distance Learning

Ed leaders, here is how to coach your teachers while schools are closed.

Ed leaders across the globe are currently wading through unfamiliar territory. They are doing their best to lead their educators in teaching and coaching from a place most of us never thought we would–our own homes. Away from our students. Away from our colleagues. Away from many of the things that we hold close to our hearts. And yet, we’re finding a way to make it work virtually for the good of our districts, as it’s imperative we continue to grow as educators for our students.

Solutions for Virtual Coaching

Provide your teachers with virtual coaching through the platform.

Schools and districts across the country, and in various parts of the world, are successfully using the Teaching Channel Platform as part of their virtual or hybrid school plans.

With our virtual coaching platform your educators will be able to:

  • Identify effective instruction–whether it’s remote or in the classroom
  • Self-reflect as teachers, coaches or school leaders
  • Provide peer feedback for teachers–via custom professional learning communities and cohorts
  • Coach, meet, and train–asynchronously or synchronously
  • Build a resource library of exemplars–with remote or in-person instruction
  • Improve student outcomes

“As a coach, it was a logical move for me to connect with teachers through video using the Teaching Channel Platform to maintain a sense of continuity and familiarity.”

Tools for Virtual Instruction in Education

Ed leaders are finding that their schools and districts are sustaining their virtual models through the Teaching Channel Platform.

As we continue to navigate our new normal it’s important that our teachers and coaches receive the ongoing focused, job-embedded support they need to have a successful school year.

Teachers weren’t trained for what they faced in the closing months of the ’19-’20 school year–and many aren’t completely comfortable or ready for what this school year has brought forth. Ed leaders are quickly realizing that instructional coaching is the key to making sure their educators are best prepared for what the future holds and video will help you get there.
