Ideally we will have three to five people who are able to give feedback on the video provided
Guidelines for Giving Feedback: 1.) Focus on behaviors not on people 2.) Be specific 3.) Use “I” statements, not “you” statements 4.) State Observations, not interpretations 5.) Remember the 3 C’s: Caring: Be kind in your comments, and remember to be careful with humor, especially sarcasm Content: Keep the comment content based in the teacher’s specific questions or hopes, or based on the learning objective Conventions: Try to make your langauge as clear and easy to read as possible 6.) Make sure feedback is actionable
Problem Statement & Description
Often feedback is tied only to evaluation, and time for collaboration can be hard to find. Teacher Space solves this problem by providing virtual learning communities that support teachers with ongoing, non-evaluative feedback on their practice. In the end this will create a collaborative community of online support for small groups of teachers.
