We know, from the research, that teacher effectiveness is the single biggest school-based influencer on student achievement. We also know, from experience, that providing on-going, personalized and relevant professional learning to all teachers within a district is a seemingly insurmountable task.

Upland Unified School District in California has found a way to meet this challenge by leveraging the power of video and making it a centerpiece of their professional learning program. Few things, in any district, are embraced as fully as the use of video has been embraced by educators at all levels of the Upland district. And the shifts in teacher and student learning they are seeing are significant, sustainable, and growing leadership at all levels.
