Online Items for Learner-Centered Teaching


The online videos and materials on this page can help you teach and coach the

routines of the Improvement Kata and Coaching Kata in a learner-personalized way.

The items are organized according to topic.


Flip the classroom! Have learners get basic information online on their own before a

classroom or practice session.  Then start the classroom or practice session by asking

learners what they think are the key points from the online item.  The responses you

hear help you understand how your learners are currently thinking, which helps you

tailor activities to suit the learner’s needs.
