The Phases of a Successful Kiddom Implementation

Successfully implementing and using the Kiddom platform to support curriculum requires alignment across your district, support for those leading the change, differentiated training for your teachers, and, most of all, an actionable plan for success. Our Kiddom professional learning programs include distinct phases of implementation to support the successful integration of the platform across your district.

Power Kiddom Implementation with the BL Lab

The BL Lab serves as the central hub for both your Kiddom implementation and other professional learning programs. Teachers can access resources, work with their coach, and track their progress towards achieving outcomes related to Kiddom.

Leaders have access to a full library of 60-minute courses to drive on-going professional learning among select cohorts of educators. Leaders can also support new teachers with a full library of research-backed strategies and lesson plans that provide differentiated support any time throughout the school year.

Administrators have a complete view of their professional learning programs and easy access to learning progress across various professional learning communities.

The Phases of Supporting OUR Math 6-8 with Kiddom


Launch experiences bring together educators to offer comprehensive support in learning to use the Kiddom platform to launch the OUR Math 6-8 curriculum. These learning experiences begin as in-person workshops in Year 1 to ensure understanding and alignment to support a successful launch for both teachers and leaders across the district. In Year 2 and 3 of implementation, teachers participate in collaborative workshops to deepen their knowledge and to have a space to work together on improving practice.

In Year 1 of implementation, educators engage with workshops designed to support all educators to take ownership in a successful launch of OUR 6-8 using the Kiddom platform. In Year 2 and beyond, educators reflect on the successes of the previous year and participate in additional workshops to better understand and utilize both the OUR 6-8 curriculum and the platform. Educators also work with a specially matched instructional coach to receive differentiated support as they continue to learn best practices for using Kiddom effectively.

Assess Progress

Leaders can better support teachers using Kiddom to power the OUR Math 6-8 Curriculum when they know what positive outcomes look like in the classroom and can make informed, data-driven decisions about their professional development programs. Learning walks are a guided non-evaluative experience that helps leaders observe classrooms, identify trends in practice, and use that information to offer their teachers personalized support.

Build a Comprehensive Learning Plan, Tailored to your District’s Needs

The typical arc to successfully implement a curriculum using Kiddom is up to three years, depending on your district’s size. Our comprehensive curriculum programs incorporate in-person, virtual, group, and individual learning experiences to provide many measures of support and guidance throughout the school year. Our team will create a learning plan that is tailored to your district’s strategic plan, and includes a mix of learning experiences backed by research and focused on measurable outcomes.

Focus on Achievable Outcomes

Outcomes are the connecting thread for all of our learning experiences. Each experience is tied to an outcome that makes the change in practice tangible and impactful for students and teachers.

"BetterLesson uses a great instructional strategy - first they share key concepts, then break out groups with time to discuss it. This helps our educators make meaning and connect with others in a safe space."

“The coaching is very detailed and the individual that is working with me understands the level to which I am comfortable with this program. I feel immensely supported and there are no expectations of what I should already know. I am being met at my experience level and more importantly I am being heard.”

“The Learning Series is thorough and engaging. It pushed teachers out of their comfort zones, helping them engage with content, planning, technology, and each other.”
