We are a collection of teachers, educators, and students who all believe in the potential of every school, every teacher, and every student. We aim to use the power of video within schools and between schools to share best practices, train teachers, and spark conversations that push educators to intentionally reflect on academic instruction and school wide culture.
We use the power of video within and between schools to share best practices, train teachers, and intentionally reflect on academic instruction, school wide culture, teacher development and school leadership. We work relentlessly every day to help schools grow through using this video internally, as well as to share best practices from others across the country who are doing the same work.
We define 'incredible' by the results they get from their students. Consistently. By selecting high-performing schools, with proven student results, we are able to begin to analyze the actions and mindsets that lead to these results. We know that what leads to extraordinary results, year after year, is not just limited to what happens inside the classrooms (although this is certainly a huge part of it!), but is a compilation of many things that happen throughout the building.
Next we take all this raw footage and spend days and weeks watching, analyzing and editing it down into short (on average 1-3 minutes long) video clips that highlight specific strategies for you to observe and then replicate with your own students.
Even with short clips, it can quickly become overwhelming when you have hundreds of them. So lastly, we take all these clips, and tag them in alignment with the 'Framework for 100%'. This framework categorizes the many mindsets and techniques we see occurring in these high-performing schools, and allows you to search and find the exact clips that will be most helpful in your own professional development. Our online video library is easy to search, browse, save and watch all the videos that will have the largest impact on your classroom and students.
In order to maximize the impact of video captured from high performing schools, we have collectively developed a common language around best practices. These are not limited to instruction, but extend to the five 'Big Buckets' that we consider essential for a school to become truly excellent.
Within each bucket we continue to narrow down skills so they become concrete, replicable, and teachable. This allows seemingly difficult and complex skills to be accessed by educators at all levels. Additionally, the Framework for 100% allows educators to strategically target smaller skills and videos within our large video library, that collectively will maximize growth for both teachers and leaders.
