Idea

Video for Peer Mentoring

Peer observations are apart of Kentucky's Professional Development system. However, getting teachers into the classroom while they are also teaching is difficult. Also, the peer observer is limited by time, and there is no rewind button. So, what if teachers used video, either formally or informally for these peer observations.

I had to video myself for the National Board process. It was the quickest way to share a lesson and receive feedback from teachers in other schools/districts. It also gave me a real snapshot into my types of questions and what my space filler words are. I realized that instead of asking for understanding, I just used the word, "Okay?" Now I am attempting to use formative assessment techniques to figure out what my students understand.

I've watched several Khan Academy videos to strengthen my understanding of a concept. It is helpful to see how another teacher would teach that particular concept.
