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.

Have teachers interact with one another and learn from a PLN ratgeher than sit and get video. Engagement will translate into interaction. Authentic Teacher Leadership will also give more buy-in than being lectured from those not in the classroom.

Hi Holly, welcome to the RDC! PLNs are so important to deepen professional learning. I'm curious about your mention of google hangouts in your title. Do you see this as a way of engaging teachers? If so, do you think that capturing deep conversation in a GHO could possibly be a beneficial video for educators? Thank you so much for joining the community and for sharing your idea!

My thinking revolved around the idea of PLC conversations and how rich conversation tends to emerge from teacher experience. In my position as an Instructional Coach, I sometimes sit on the outside and listen to the conversation. I think of things I would like to say or questions I would like to ask and, through their conversation, I gain a deeper understanding or I begin to think of ways I can make their strategies or information work for me. So, to answer your question, if I wanted to introduce a teacher to PLC's, I would feel very comfortable showing a video of a GHO conversation to begin their PD. I also think that teachers have to interact in some way to make the learning the most impactful. In presentation mode, I think you can view videos together and then have a conversation from remote locations rather than everyone being in the same place. I will research further and let you know for sure but, I think that would be an interesting PD format.
