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 It Interactive

Instead of just showing teachers a video (which is like talking AT them), show them the video and then pose challenges and encourage conversation.

Potential Impact

Teachers feel engaged, free to ask questions, receive feedback and get ideas from other teachers.

Possible Implementation

I have been using our LMS (we currently use Schoology) to post videos, which many teachers have said are helpful. Depending on the topic, (for example if the PD was on a tech tool they can use) teachers are asked to create content to show that they can successfully use the tool. Beyond, the video, though we are having a conversation using the Discussion boards in Schoology surrounding ideas, classroom implications, suggestions, etc. We have our own PLN where teachers can feel safe to ask questions and share ideas during their own "free-time." I love the USF Technology Matrix because it has videos of teachers in the classroom showing you what integration would look like on the matrix at different levels.

Hi Dawana, welcome to the RDC! Receiving feedback and providing reflection is so important to deepen video PL. I'm curious about the way you integrate PD videos into Schoology and then engage teachers. Do all teachers upload videos? Are the videos created at school or are they PD videos from other sources? Thank you for sharing!

Hey Kip! So I make the videos and there's a sort of "call to action" where teachers are asked to create a product to show that they not only watched the videos, but took a look at the tool being presented and are able to use it. So, for example, this summer I'm introducing them to 10 apps that they can use in the classroom. They had to use each app, create something and upload it to Schoology. Other teachers can comment, offer advice, encouragement, and ideas for using these apps in the classroom with students.
