1) I use videos for learning more about my content (chemistry) and new discoveries in science that I incorporate into my class presentations. I share how I acquired my new knowledge with my student to model the need to stay current in one’s profession. 2) I used video as part of my National Board Certification and renewal process. This use of video required me to view my own teaching and identify specific evidence from that video that illustrated specific instructional choices that positively impacted student learning. This practice of critically looking at my own classroom actions has helped me greatly to be more intentional about my choices during class time. 3) I use videos fromteachingchannel.org to help me learn new classroom strategies. These videos are critical for me to see how a given strategy is executed in a REAL classroom by a master teacher. The growth in availability and ease of use of video has definitely changed the way I stay current and grow in my content and professional practice.
