a Fitbit for teachers…that measures student engagement!
Research shows that the more students speak in class, the more they learn. At TeachFX, our mission is to promote more meaningful and equitable classroom dialogue through professional learning that is data driven, job embedded, and teacher led.
The TeachFX tool visualizes for teachers what portions of your class are teacher talk vs. student talk.
You can also download our mobile app on your iPhone or iPad:
Simply use your iPhone, iPad, or laptop to analyze your class, and the app’s artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm tracks your talk ratio automatically, with no extra work from you or an instructional coach. The idea is to give teachers a useful barometer of student engagement you can check every day!
Last year, 400+ schools used the TeachFX tool, and teachers increased their student participation by an average 12.6 minutes per class.
What Fitbit brought to exercise, we’re bringing to teachers.
Professional Learning with TeachFX
We offer a unique one-day PD, built into your normal instructional day, that uses the groundbreaking TeachFX tool to increase student engagement.
The magic of our professional learning days comes from having every teacher in your building measuring their student participation using the TeachFX tool. In our sessions, we work with your staff on how to interpret and use their TeachFX data to improve their teaching and to facilitate better teacher collaborative teams and coaching relationships.
Our focus areas include:
Boosting Student Engagement • Promoting Teacher Collaboration • Supporting ELLs • Addressing Disproportionality • Improving Classroom Management • Supporting SWDs • Encouraging Academic Language • Escaping I-R-E • Authentic Questioning • Student Grouping Methods • Engineering Equity • Reducing Teacher Talk
Our professional learning is led by David Brazer, a Stanford Professor of Education and former high school principal. Listen to a conversation with David about how he created our PD from his own experience using the TeachFX tool.
