GoReact partners with AACTE to expand access to video assessment for teacher education programs

Collaboration benefits AACTE member institutions with complimentary access to GoReact’s platform through July and discounted access thereafter.

SALT LAKE CITY — February 24, 2021 — GoReact and the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education (AACTE) today announced a joint venture to expand educator preparation programs’ access to video assessment tools. The partnership was announced during AACTE’s 73rd Annual Meeting, the premier event for teacher education.

Through the partnership, AACTE member institutions can receive complimentary access to GoReact’s video assessment platform for a limited time and an ongoing discount thereafter. New GoReact users will receive free access to the platform until July 31, 2021, while existing GoReact users will receive expanded usage rights during the same timeframe. All AACTE members will receive a minimum of 10% discounted pricing following the complimentary service period. More than 175 AACTE member institutions currently use GoReact within their educator preparation programs.

“We’re thrilled to partner with AACTE to expand access to critical video coaching and assessment tools that greatly enhance teacher education,” said GoReact Founder and CEO Ken Meyers, “We want to give teacher education programs every advantage. Enriching the coaching and assessment experience is vital to improving learning outcomes for the next generation of American educators.”

The GoReact video assessment platform offers benefits that are especially valuable in teacher education:

  • Improving certification rates: Teacher educators can use video practice for benchmarking, disposition assessments, and personalized feedback for remote and in-person learners.
  • Simplifying the accreditation process: Teacher educators can use COPPA and FERPA compliant videos as evidence to demonstrate expert teacher-in-training skills to accreditors.
  • Model high-impact teaching: Teacher educators can demonstrate best practices with video assignments for skill development, supported by multimodal feedback for skill improvement, all with time-coded feedback.
  • Flexible technology features: GoReact integrates with leading learning management systems and popular video platforms like Zoom, connects seamlessly with most computer hardware systems, and is designed to comply with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) version 2.1, levels A and AA.

“Ensuring high quality teachers with the capabilities to positively impact and inspire learners is essential,” said AACTE President and CEO Lynn M. Gangone. “Collaborations such as our joint venture with GoReact expand access to technology in our programs and facilitate the development of classroom-ready teachers.”

Video assessment has experienced significant traction in American classrooms in recent years, and the prolonged impact of Covid-19 has only accelerated this trend. Education market analysts at Tambellini Group recently identified video assessment as one of the fastest-growing categories in education technology.

GoReact will present on Friday, February 26, during the AACTE 73rd Annual Meeting. VP of Business Development, Josh Beutler, will discuss how GoReact is facilitating scalable video observation, coaching, and assessment for AACTE member institutions.
