Professional development resource – @IRIS_Connect by @TeacherToolkit

WOW! I came across this technology via TeacherToolkit – UK based edublogger. This looks so awesome as a tool for improving teaching and learning and building a growth mindset/learning community within a school. Scary at first but I think it really could be transformational.

He also finds it transformational and talks more about it here.

When I was at university we had to record ourselves teaching and then watch and reflect on the lesson, with our peers. It certainly helped me to see lots of things I was doing from a very different perspective. It was also amazing to reflect after a period of time, but while still being able to have the reality of the lesson fresh in memory – right in front of you!

I don’t know of anything like this in Australia but surely something exits… Does anyone have experience using video as a method of professional development in schools? Or know of similar programs?

  1. comment disappeared!

    I have had the experience of being videoed while teaching a lesson, but not for positive reasons.

    I think that the feedback/reflection as a followup afterwards is definitely beneficial! 🙂


  2. yes. I’ve had the experience of being videoed in a classroom, but unfortunately for the wrong reasons.

    I definitely think that it has awesome benefits though, when used in the way you’ve mentioned 🙂
