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.

Make PD more interactive and open to personalization

How many times have I sat passively in a PD session thinking 1.) that I have already attended sessions that delivered this content and feel ready to accelerate my learning? 2.) that I have found better solutions myself than the ones being offered in the PD? Teachers should be active participants, have the ability to progress beyond the content, and the opportunity to disagree with presenters (citing evidence) and present improved solutions. After all, experienced teachers are educational experts.

Potential Impact

Raising the status of teachers as experts in our own field of experience will have incredible impact on our effectiveness, professionalism and job satisfaction.

Possible Implementation

I am no technology expert, but gaming structures, social media platforms, and "create your own story" technologies should provide guidance for creating PD sessions that teachers can customize, create and share.

Hi Rebecca, welcome to RDC. Your introductory statement tells me you are passionate about this topic. Thanks so much for jumping in with your idea. You mentioned gaming structures. What gaming structures have you used or heard of that may work in this instance? Have you used gaming structures before in your classroom or know students who love games? What about it makes it so intriguing and how can we transfer that to PD? Thanks again!
