Individual Learning Plans
Learning plans empower educators to set goals, track progress, and plan and organize professional learning opportunities.
Educators, instructional leaders, and coaches work individually and collaboratively to add goals and courses to personalized professional learning plans based on educator self-assessment and feedback from observation and evaluation activities.
Learning plans monitor progress towards goals and allow educators to enter notes to update progress and provide opportunities for leaders and coaches to provide feedback to educators.
Teachscape Learn collaboration tools enable ongoing feedback and learning across distances 24/7.
Educators engage with peers and share best practices in online communities centered on common interests and targeted needs. With discussion forums, wikis, and community Q&A, educators can collaborate anytime.
Communities provide public spaces to enable organization-wide collaboration on strategic initiatives, exclusive forums for professional learning communities, and private venues for individual coaching.
Colleagues can recommend course offerings and share articles, lesson plans, and artifacts.
Video has revolutionized educators’ ability to observe what good teaching practices look like. As a tool for self-reflection, video lets educators see what their students see every day. Coaches and mentors use video to assess learning and provide constructive feedback. Districts, states, and teacher preparation programs can create best practice exemplars and collaborative training programs.
Incorporate video in professional learning
Teachscape channels provide access to a library of 250 videos of best-practice teaching, expert commentary, and unedited classroom footage that educators can share and use to create video clips for their own collection. Videos can be used for online collaboration as well as for in-person professional learning.
Videos are organized by subject, grade, instructional strategy, keyword, and featured expert so you can easily find relevant materials.
Expand capacity with organization video channels
Organizations can use Teachscape Video Channels to curate community-driven libraries of best practices that educators can watch, share, and comment on. Locally defined keywords and frameworks allow educators to search for clips that are directly relevant to their topics of interest.
Create personal video collections
Individual educators can store and organize their own collection of videos. Videos that colleagues, coaches, or instructional leaders recommend or share are automatically added to these collections for easy access.
Establish a safe place for self-reflection
Video channels provide a secure, private space for educators to upload and review videos and associated artifacts. Educators can share individual videos and clips with colleagues and leaders for coaching and evaluation purposes.
