How We Document Learning

At Eskolta, we help schools, districts, and community organizations tell their stories and codify their successes. Our approach begins by diving deep into practice, elevating key voices, and communicating in a way that engages the right audience—students, families, teachers, district leads, or the national press. We believe the way an insight is captured—whether written up as a classroom tool, videotaped as a case study for wide distribution, or made into a clickable dashboard for taking action—makes all the difference in whether it has lasting impact or ends up growing dusty on a shelf.
