Remote Coaching 

The remote nature of EdConnective allows our Master Educators from across the nation to reach teachers in any classroom, anywhere. After being matched to a coach, a camcorder is sent to the enrolled teacher who records a clip of their classroom instruction. They upload the clip to the offsite coach who observes the video and provides feedback and coaching on classroom management and pedagogy via phone or video chat. This recording, upload, and feedback process repeats for 6-12 consecutive weeks.

Data Driven Observations & Actionable Feedback 

EdConnective takes each teacher through a dynamic coaching process grounded in best practices from the highest performing school networks across the nation. Our coaches carry out objective observations that illuminate what students are doing at various moments of instruction. Numbers and percentages of student outcomes and teacher practices are recorded during the observations that provide a data-driven baseline for coaching to begin. Next, coaches provide bite-sized pedagogies inspired by Doug Lemov's Teach Like A Champion that teachers practice and implement during each week of the coaching process. Lastly, the extent to which student outcomes and teacher practice grows each week is measured to highlight tangible results.

Accelerating student achievement

Every student deserves a great teacher and every teacher deserves a great coach

Highly effective teachers can accelerate student achievement by multiple grade levels in a single year. As such, teacher quality is suggested to be the most important school level difference between minority and majority children that explains the achievement gap. Increasing teacher quality increases student achievement but most teachers do not have proper supports needed to thrive. Inconsistent feedback from untrained educators, yearly evaluations, ineffective group workshops, and college courses are the status quo. Meanwhile, certain models of instructional coaching: individualized observation and feedback over the course of consecutive weeksis one of the few supports out of thousands that is actually correlated with impact on teacher quality and student achievement. 

EdConnective was created to increase access to a highly impactful form of teacher support. Teaching is an incredibly challenging craft to master and one-on-one coaching is the most promising and supportive way to improve performance. Also, EdConnective's a la carte and remote model of coaching delivery makes coaching extraordinarily accessible and affordable. We offer coaching 6-12 weeks at a time and 1 - 50 teachers at time, which reduces the cost of this intensive support by 65% or more than traditional on-site models. We strongly believe that a research based investment in teacher quality yields long lasting impact for both teachers and students whose life outcomes are directly correlated to increases in achievement.
