BetterLesson empowers K-12 teachers to build a modern classroom: learner-centered, culturally responsive, and personalized. Instead of the conventional format of professional development for educators, BetterLesson supports teachers in a way that’s personalized and continuous -- utilizing a mix of virtual 1:1 coaching, virtual PLC coaching, remote workshops, and in-person workshops, all supported by the BetterLesson Lab. We match each teacher with a world-class coach and then leverage our technology to suggest customized teaching strategies, to qualitatively and quantitatively measure impact on student learning, and to continuously improve teaching practice through rapid iteration. This process leads to off-the-charts teacher love (our data shows teachers love BetterLesson more than Apple users love their iPhones), high administrator engagement, and, most importantly, dramatic teacher and student growth.
We design and tightly control every aspect of the system in-house: our coaching methodology, the content behind our pedagogical viewpoint, the delivery of our services to all teachers and district leaders, and the software powering our web and mobile apps.
