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.

Inspiring Teachers and Students through Videos

Remember teachers are like the students during a PD. When watching a video for PD, teachers need to be engaged in the video. There needs to be an action and expectation throughout the learning. Just as we expect our students to be engaged.

Potential Impact

More engagement, more buy in from teachers, more action taking place from the learning. More likely what's being learned in the PD will be implemented in the classroom.

Possible Implementation

Hook your audience, set objectives and expectations, allow time to reflect and interact with video and others to share what is being learned during the PD.

Angelica thank you so much for the post and welcome to the RDC. I totally agree that we need to make sure our PD is engaging for teachers; however, can you help me better understand how you want to accomplish that? Within your proposal, what would be the specific, actionable steps to help use video effectively to make PD more engaging?
