Idea for

How might we enrich video with other resources or experiences so that it better supports your practice?

In Stage 1, we heard that watching a video by itself isn’t often helpful.

Student Video Reflects Instruction

Which would you rather analyze, an adult’s tightly structured lesson or the brilliant things kids then do with it?

Potential Impact

We can’t ignore the effect this accountability movement is having on teacher disenfranchisement. The ones who will analyze videos of themselves are already reflective in their practice. Turning over control of lens to students encourages our kids to show off their best selves as learners.

Possible Implementation

With cameras were available during group work, collaboration and metacognitive reflection would become ingrained in their academic habits. Reviewing video of students is a window into instruction but the conversation would naturally develop around the condition that made the learning possible.
