Hoot uses web conferencing and collaboration tools to replace in person observations and consultations and small group meetings. Hoot blends 3 models of effective professional development into one system.
Becoming and remaining a highly effective teacher is a lifelong process that requires much more than a teaching certificate. It requires on-going, job-embedded, professional development and support over the long haul.
The Hoot Blended Coaching Solution allows a teacher to participate in a personalized learning experience mentored by an expert coach and supported by a team of other teachers who problem-solve together and support each other as part of a professional learning community.
The Hoot Blended Coaching model was developed and validated through a $6 million research grant from the U.S. Department of Education. This work was led by teacher educators working with teachers in real classrooms with real students.
