Are you familiar with Teaching Channel? This is a fantastic site that you can subscribe to free of charge. Why? It is filled with high quality videos that show you best teaching practices and strategies for student engagement in our schools. I cannot recommend this enough if you are working towards understanding the CCSS. I really find these videos interesting and helpful. Check this one out and see if you agree with me.
Anyhow, they ran a contest for a free flip video camera and I entered and won. Me! I never win anything and I was so shocked and excited. I love taking video of kids and using them in my presentations for teachers. You can talk the talk but watching a lesson take place is so much more powerful. Right? I cannot wait to go back to school and take advantage of my new tech "toy." Do you use video in your classroom? How?
