Imagine receiving immediate, personalized feedback after every lesson you teach

Imagine being able to quickly know the answers to questions like "How much was I talking?," "What kinds of questions did I ask and with what frequency?," "How much wait time did I allow students?," "How do I compare with other teachers at my grade level and subject area?," and "Am I improving over time?"

Natural language processing, machine learning and the insatiable curiosity of teachers are creating Earshot: the Fitbit for Teachers. Earshot is an app that collects all the sound data from a teacher mic during a class period and then analyzes it and presents it back to teachers for immediate use. Teachers own their own data and can access information and a community to improve their questioning and talk/wait time skills.

More about Earshot:

Frequent and meaningful feedback is in short supply in today's K-12 classrooms. Standardized tests, principal observations and even student surveys can help but offer incomplete data of teacher instructional practice - placing these feedback tools squarely in the "too little, too late" category. We can do better.

Questions and discussions are the currency of great teachers developing students' 21st C learning skills (creativity, communication, critical thinking and collaboration). When teachers are more aware of their questioning and talking habits, they can plan for changes that will make immediate and astounding impacts on their students.

Like a Fitbit gathers information to help us reach our fitness goals, Earshot gathers data to help teachers reach their instructional goals.
