Fresh Eyes on Teaching assists educators improve their effectiveness in the classroom through digital video collaboration between teachers. The ability of the instructor to engage their students is critical to overall understanding and achievement. The "how" of what teachers teach is paramount to maximizing student success. There are multiple ways to skin a cat, as there are multiple ways to teach knowledge, skills, and wisdom to students. Some ways work better than others. With teacher effectiveness as the aim, Fresh Eyes on Teaching is hosting an ongoing Teacher-of-the-Month Contest.

an interactive, video platform to upload lessons and collaborate with fellow teachers
a taggable storage library by topic, subject, date, name, etc. for every teacher
