It's NOT the video that's the Problem

The problem with video PD or any PD is not necessarily receiving the content it is the mundane questions that are used as follow up. You know the "Answer these questions so we know you watched the video" type of activities. The discussions with your peers and the sharing of ideas is what makes the PD go to the next level. Creating videos and placing them in an LMS so it is easily accessible makes for convenient PD, but convenience does not necessarily mean effective PD. Learning and efficiency does not always go hand in hand. What if we had teachers making videos to show what they have learned and these are the videos that are shared. Are we trying to reach for perfection or should we be thinking about helping teachers find their voice? Maybe the there are a series of videos ... one that starts the conversation ... the inspiration ... that is followed by other videos of teachers implementing.
