Support New Teacher Growth with Swivl
Reflectivity + Robot is the most efficient solution to ensure new teachers get
the feedback, reflection, and coaching they need.
For new teacher support, the status quo isn’t enough.
Classroom visits are disruptive.
Walkthroughs and observations can exacerbate existing classroom management issues.
After school PD can be impractical.
When new teachers have urgent problems, large-group PD may feel disconnected from their work.
Visiting other teachers is time-consuming.
These visits are valuable, but often take new teachers away from prep time.
Coaching is resource intensive.
Coaches, when part of a district’s PD plan, are often limited in number and stretched thin.

Reflection + Classroom Video: Essentials of New Teacher Support
Reflectivity (formally known as Swivl Teams) + Robot makes it faster and easier to support new teachers through coaching, reflection, and lesson feedback. It starts by capturing high-quality classroom video using Swivl Robots, then making Reflectivity your central place for sharing and discussing the videos.
Teachers can record their lessons, then reflect to find challenges and opportunities.
By recording and sharing lesson videos, teachers, coaches, and admin can align on curriculum expectations.
Help your coaches support more teachers in less time through time-stamped commenting in Teams by Swivl.

Swivl for Teacher Prep Programs
Reflectivity + Robot captures simple, high-quality video and audio data to satisfy the most stringent program requirements.
Whether your program relies on edTPA or PPAT for teacher candidate certification, Swivl optimizes and
simplifies the recording and submission experience for your student teachers.
Making an investment in Swivl allows for the utilization of enhanced supervision and feedback models that were previously unavailable through outdated technology.

When the Swivl Robot is in the classroom, it’s an objective observer. Teachers look at what they’re doing, and how their kids are responding. That’s more powerful than anyone saying ‘you should be doing this’.
