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.

Collaborative Coaching for Teachers and Students

Video in the classroom allows for a platform for teachers to not only collaborative with superiors, but with colleges in evaluating teaching practices and identifying deficiencies in those practices where ideas and suggestions can be made for specialized professional development. But video also serves as an opportunity for the teacher to see where students are in need of support in the form of instructional practices that all's the teacher to seek individualized solutions, possibly what professional development they would benefit from. By using real time and extended recordings of lessons teachers are able to see how they are as teachers day to day and how those needs for further development plays out more comprehensively.

Hi Angela, welcome to the RDC! I agree that using real time and extended recordings of lessons can be powerful PL for educators. How would you capture and archive these lessons to share with others? What kind of reflection process would you create so that the PL continues after the videos are viewed?

Thank you! There definitely needs to be a use of technology in the form of a cloud or a website. I would lean more toward the platform of a website. A website would provide a more interactive platform and the opportunity to also post accompanying resources with the videos, such as the lesson plans, supplementary handouts and resources. It is funny that I came across this website at this point because I am just starting my National Board Certification process and as you may know, it is all about teacher reflection in order to aid it becoming a better teacher. I truly believe that reflection is vital for teacher growth. It might be helpful to have a reflection component that goes with each video piece that can be addressed for any video no matter the content area. The reflection piece could an additional link on the lesson's video page that viewers could click on taking them to the reflection page associated with the video. The reflection page could include resources where the teacher discusses how the standards were addressed in the lesson, how the needs of the learners were addressed, a discussion of the strategies that were chosen to facilitate the lesson and why they were chosen, including other teaching and learning components that are involved in lesson planning no matter what the content area. It would be helpful to include an anecdotal video where the teacher conducts a real time reflection/interview on the lesson overall. This would allow teachers to truly hear from the teacher's perspective. If possible it would be great to include students in such a video from their perspectives.

Hi Angela, I completely agree with your thoughts on reflection and I love that mentioned including student reflection and voice. Check out Wendi P.'s idea "Get Students Involved" and Kristin M.'s idea "Video Learning with Accountability". They each discuss the importance of student voice and may be of interest to you to possibly refine and collaborate. Thank you for sharing!
