Using video for professional development in the classroom
It is time to focus on what teachers love – to teach.
We have taken steps to let teachers show off their skills within the classroom and encourage the sharing of best practice by introducing video lesson observations in SchooliP and CollegeiP. Our performance management software is now even more comprehensive than ever before.
Videos may be recorded by colleagues. Here evidence of outstanding practice can be celebrated and areas requiring improvement identified. Videos are simply stored in our activity feed as evidence for staff appraisals and ongoing professional development.
The videos may be commented upon/annotated to highlight key areas for improvement and best practice by colleagues. Depending on their merit, the video observations and their associated annotations may be shared with other colleagues to enhance professional development.
Observing lessons: the future
With the new video annotations feature, staff can utilise expertise from not only their own school or college, but other schools and colleges. This allows for the sharing of best practice utilising experts who could feasibly be located anywhere in the world.
