As video has become more affordable and portable, school districts across North America are exploring ways to use the technology for improving teaching effectiveness. They are discovering how powerful video can be for self-reflection, coaching and teamwork. However, if video is not implemented effectively, its impact will be significantly decreased.
During this presentation, participants will learn strategies from the book Focus on Teaching: Using Video for High-Impact Instruction. Participants will learn what should be done when implementing video in their district or school to increase teaching effectiveness – including suggestions for teachers coaching themselves, instructional coaches coaching teachers, teams, and principals conducting evaluation. We will explorewhat to do and what to avoid to ensure that video is implemented in a way that makes a real, positive difference in teaching and ultimately for students.
