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.

Ease of Use

It can not be something that is checked out or only the top 10% are comfortable with or the impact will be minimal. It has to be easy enough that all teachers can use it and have the quality necessary to be useful. Use an EduCam360 IP camera and VIEWpath it is possible.

Potential Impact

Every teacher has the ability to record with a few clicks of the mouse and even schedule in advance or on a recurring basis. The System gives the teacher an authentic view of the classroom for PLC Collaboration, true self-reflection, Coaching and Evaluation. Teachers could pick the recording they feel best represents their teaching. As Jim Knight has said, teachers need Autonomy to choose and area of growth but there still needs to Accountability that they are moving forward. Deliberate Practice or Lesson Studies could be enhanced with this.

Possible Implementation

Use an EduCam360 IP camera and VIEWpath creates a system that a teacher can Record, Store and Share. Newton County GA has put this in every classroom in the district. They complete 600-800 teacher initiated recordings a day.

Wow! Thanks for introducing me to something new Anthony. The first thing I thought of was, what are they doing with all of those videos every day? Have you used this system? Love to hear your personal experience with it. Thanks for joining the conversation!

I was part of the original deployment and training and have been back there many times. The videos are automatically deleted after 30 days unless the teacher marks it to save. But I think your real question is how are they using them. Every PLC meeting starts of with the observation of someone in the group. They use them with peers, school based coaches and administrators feedback. They also are allowed to choose a recording of their choice to submit for their formal evaluation. They are doing on a large scale as what most people try to do with a small group.
