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.

Action Plan follow up .... Create our own video

I have seen many videos for PD over the years but never asked to do anything with the content in my classroom. Any form PD needs to be followed by an action plan. How am I going to use what I learned today to make my classroom better tomorrow? What if PD video sites had lists of possible action plans and a space for teachers to post their own follow up videos? Teachers could talk about how it work for them, the pitfalls and struggles of moving from watching PD to making real change in the classroom. This would make a great collection of videos for all teachers to view and learn from in the future. The videos can be organized and cross referenced by subject, grade level and strategy, giving every teacher an anchor for their learning.

Potential Impact

Teachers will have to take what they have learned and put it into action into their classroom. It makes teachers accountable to applying their learning.

Possible Implementation

Site hosting videos could contain action plan templates and allow for peer sharing. After viewing the video, teachers can work on action plan and share how their learning turned into action in their classrooms.

I like where this is going Todd. Who would view the follow-up videos? Would teachers receive peer feedback as well? Would their video be able to be identified as exemplary? Thanks for jumping right in on RDC!

The follow up videos could be viewed by all for feedback. The peer community could make the decision to identify exemplars based upon feedback.

I have seen PDCA template, It would work great with videos. Thanks for the suggestion. SO the teacher training site would have PDCA as an option for an action plan. then Teachers could make their own reflective videos showing the effectiveness of the training video.
