Teaching, a video showcase of inspiring and effective teaching practices in America’s schools, has built a site that teachers love. Each month, between 200,000 and 300,000 educators visit the site and hundreds register each day. Now you can harness the power of Teaching Channel for all of the educators in your school, district, or education organization with Teaching Channel Teams, a next generation professional development platform.


Teams is a private collaboration platform for schools, districts, and education organizations enabling teachers and teacher leaders to work together. At the center of Teams is a rich library of high-quality videos that you can add to and customize. Teams helps teachers to learn new instructional strategies, try them in their own classrooms, and reflect on their practice in a safe, secure environment. Learn more at or email us at

Watch the video above to see how the Academy for Urban School Leadership is using Teams to promote high-quality, standards-based instruction to improve student achievement.
