When using video to support my practice, I would like to see Choice and Variety. I've sat through a few sessions where we had to watch a 40 minute video of exemplary teaching. The teaching may have been great, but the video put me to sleep! I'd suggest using clips of video, chunking the distribution, with the opportunity to view the entire video at a later time. Variety means that teachers be encouraged to make videos as well as view them. Create a departmental video that shows what's working in our classrooms or how online resources are used. A department's video would be viewed by other departments, to help teachers determine how to help students make connections between their classes. Years ago, I realized how students revised their work as they created videos and watched other students' videos. School-made videos can complement professionally-made videos to stimulate reflection and discussion within a faculty.
