Transforming Professional Learning

Transform professional learning to create better teacher and learner outcomes. 

High performing teachers make a huge difference to learner outcomes, and to see this change, teachers require professional learning that maximises the practical application of theory.

IRIS Connect bridges the gap between teaching theory and teaching practice by connecting educators with one another through smart, innovative professional learning video software allowing them to inquire, reflect and refine practice collaboratively.

     “If you look at the research, it says that about 80% of what happens in a class a teacher does not see or hear. How can we get more eyes into the class? How do you get teachers to see what it’s like being a student in their classroom? I’m a great fan of recording classrooms and using video to show teachers how they look to students. That’s the power of video, it’s another way to see your impact” – Prof. John Hattie.
