Tch Plus makes professional learning actionable, evidence-based, and localized as teachers explore new strategies, approaches, techniques, or tools. Take a peek!
Focus On Proven Strategies & What Matters Most
Formerly known as Teaching Channel Teams, we’ve reset our name in favor of Tch Plus to signal a shift in what we do and how we design features and learning experiences to support teachers in their professional learning endeavors and inquiries into practice.
As we continue to grow our free Tch video library and expand our subscription-based video offerings, we also realize that improving teaching requires that new ideas are put into action to truly shift practice. Getting better together requires trying out new strategies and approaches, taking productive risk to push through boundaries, and engaging in reflective discourse with others to tease out classroom puzzles of practice.
We’ve designed Tch Plus to be responsive to fostering inquiry, collaboration, and applied learning tools in response to fostering this type of applied learning.
- Premade, customizable, and clonable inquiry-based cycles for coaching and PLCs
- Video annotation tools to analyze, unpack and reflect on classroom practices
- The Tch Recorder video app that effortlessly captures video, which can be edited and uploaded directly into private teams within Tch Plus
- Facilitator Dashboards and administrator metrics to see cumulative experiences, to encourage online feedback, and to witness teacher growth over time
