In the early days of Internet communication Gwen Solomon invited me to NYC to be part of an edtech get-together. My good friend Norm went along. Norm understood me, and was good at translating ideas. I miss him. We made it to the conference. From where we sat I could see Gwen, and a very quiet large screen remote of Kathy Schrock. Something was wrong. I got up. Norm asked, “Where are you going?” I said, “I can fix this.” I walked onto the stage. Gwen was more pleased than surprised. I jiggled a few wires, clicked a few buttons & we heard Kathy. Gwen introduced me to Kathy Schrock that way. ;>)

Just read a post on video teacher evaluations. It missed a few points. I'm not shy about mentioning a couple. The way that this video approach succeeds is when the video tools & format are consistent, & done often. The key is to have educators video themselves often for self-analysis. It's a bit more than videoing a golf swing, but self-correcting by educators themselves can happen. Relying on a "feature movie" approach for evaluation is more show than professional developmentally useful. Today, it is not difficult for teachers to create their own consistent Vlog log for better teaching. There's more, but that's a start.
