The recording feature means that the observer does not actually have to be in classroom at the time of delivery. Whilst observed lessons have a tendency to be a little staged, video lesson observation can help to create a more natural atmosphere. Likewise, the recording can be observed by a number of colleagues. Comments can be left by multiple parties and a consensus can be achieved. This can help leadership teams to arrive at a collective judgement on the standards that are desired in the classroom.
We understand that there may be some concerns from members of staff regarding who can see recordings of their teaching. Permission settings ensure that recorded lessons are only available to the intended parties. Videos can be shared to demonstrate best practice. This can be particularly helpful to newly qualified members of staff who wish to see good teaching to aspire to.
The bespoke nature of our iP software means that different types of annotation categories can be implemented into the software. For instance, student questioning, time management and behaviour management can be areas of focus. The categories can relate to whole school priorities and help to encourage reflective practice.
Overall, video lesson observations are a great means of generating a more reflective culture. Education is changing in front of our eyes and the recording of lessons is likely to become more and more common as distance learning increases. At present, it is an opportunity to enhance teaching to help provide more purposeful learning for students.
