In Stage 1, we heard that watching a video by itself isn’t often helpful.
Rachel's idea is innovative, feasible to implement, and has the potential for big impact. Help Rachel get ready for Innovator's weekend by sharing your feedback. How would you make this idea work in your setting?
My idea is to create videos that provides feedback or comments that shows up during the video. I could see this working in two ways: the first is that the teacher who taught the lesson can have the "teacher commentary" in comments below the video in real time. Observers can see the rationale for why the teacher made the moves they did, or the teacher can explain what they might do instead if they were to teach the lesson again. Second, teachers would be able to make comments that could provide feedback to the teachers, creating a feedback loop for teachers.
I think this could be an incredible way to build a database of lessons that both informs CCSS practice as well as providing feedback to teachers who are interested in improving their practice. It can also help teachers within a school building or network collaborate and build a data-base of their work as educators, or be even more broad across many districts.
I see the videos being similar to VH1's Pop Up Videos, or to the way that Soundcloud allows listeners to make comments on audio that show up at the exact moment that is connected to the comment. I see the videos themselves housed in a forum like Teaching Channel, or something similar, where groups can be formed and videos can be made public or private. Ideally there could be a data base that has videos showing lessons that apply to all CCSS across grades and subjects.
