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. Have Learners watch or read a relevant

item online before they practice, or before a classroom session on, that aspect of the

Improvement Kata or Coaching Kata.


Then ask Learners what they feel are the key points from the online item. The

responses you receive will help you understand how your Learners are currently

thinking, which helps you tailor their learning activities to suit their needs.
