We believe it’s possible for every student to have an excellent teacher.
It’s no surprise that teacher quality is the primary factor driving student achievement. Yet developing great teachers is extremely difficult. SmarterCookie enables schools to scale great professional development for all their teachers - and do it within budget.
Our first product is a private video sharing and coaching platform.
- Teachers upload short videos of their instruction and receive frequent feedback from administrators and peers
- Schools set up video libraries of exemplary teaching to share ideas
- Teachers can review their own video and identify ways to improve
It’s more effective and less expensive than existing professional development.
We’re working with great organizations across the country, including KIPP charter schools, Teach for America, and Rocketship Education. In 5 years, every school in the country will be using video to better support their teachers. And we’ll be powering them.
