Idea

Inspiring Educators through Video

Provide a personalized way of learning for teachers through videos. The videos would be no longer than 40 minutes at the most. They would come in a series. For example, say you wanted to learn about the planning and implementation of project based learning in your classroom. You would start with the first video in the series. There would be materials that went along with the video so that you would be able to work through them as the video played. This would allow you to pause the video as you work if you needed more time. The series would end with the actual application of that strategy being shown in a classroom. At the end of each video there would be the ability to communicate with others who have watched the same video. Teachers would be able to see other teachers that had viewed those lessons and be in contact with them through message boards and social media outlets. A twitter chat could be set up at a certain time each week in order to continue the learning and sharing process.

I think it would be great if professional learning videos came in some type of series. They could be sort videos but together made up a whole series. It would include everything from how to get you started, support along the way, and seeing the strategy in practice. I also think that some type of collaboration piece to go along with the videos would be very beneficial. That way when you began to implement you had support and feedback on your own practice.

My best professional learning has come through experiences and collaboration with other teachers. Sometimes it has been more formal, and sometimes just a quick conversation with a colleague. So many of us have so much to offer to each other and the power of collaboration in education could really be what changes our profession. The best professional learning experiences I have been involved in offer time for collaboration, and that is what makes it powerful.

I am a big fan of TED talks. They are incredibly motivating and typically have a very powerful message. In the world of education, I don't think enough time is devoted to building teacher capacity. TED talks are a great way to share a message quickly and to get people talking about the topic at hand.
