Professional Learning Grants

$1.5 Million Fund Will Support Video Coaching and Observation

Edthena has created a $1.5 million fund to support districts' efforts to implement video coaching and video observation as part of their professional learning initiatives.

The Innovation Fund, a part of Edthena's 10-year anniversary celebration, is a matching grant that will offer a range of funding, based on district size, to help implement the Edthena platform. Grants are awarded for up to three years.

According to Edthena: "Districts can use the award-winning Edthena video observation platform in a number of ways to support high-impact teaching and help streamline feedback to teachers. The platform enables feedback to teachers using video observations and increased teacher-to-teacher collaboration. There is also the ability to scale best practices across the district with secure video libraries, to engage educators in flexible micro-credential-style learning, and more."

Grants will be awarded on a rolling basis (monthly). The first round of applications will be reviewed September 30.
