Geller, the founder of the video coaching-based professional development platform Edthena, and educational consultant O'Donnell provide practical, research-based strategies for using video as a tool to improve teacher practice. The first part examines preparation, with five helpful focusing techniques for analyzing video evidence. Twelve successful, precise, and applicable ideas for video-powered learning comprise the bulk of the text, including classroom tours and video observations. Chapters each feature examples, a breakdown of the impact and benefits, and a step-by-step guide for implementation. Techniques vary in scope and can take anywhere from one day to one school year. Appendixes offer quick summaries of the techniques, tips for recording and sharing video, and a framework for facilitating discussion.
VERDICT K-12 administrators or professional development coordinators looking to incorporate video-based professional learning into their schools or districts will find plenty of material here. A solid purchase for school libraries with professional development collections.
