The eight themes identified as likely to make the biggest difference to our students are: 1. Teachers’ beliefs about their students influence how they teach and interact with them. 2. Explicit teaching practices involve teachers clearly showing students what to do and how to do it, rather than having students discover that information themselves. 3. Effective feedback provides students with relevant, explicit, ongoing, constructive and actionable information about their performance against learning outcomes from the syllabus. 4. Edpuzzle.

How to Use Videos for PD Teachers Will Love

The answer may shock you! In the United States alone, a whopping $18 billion a year is spent on professional development, but sadly, many of the country’s nearly 4 million teachers don’t find it useful or educational. So what’s the problem with traditional PD? Just like with students, it all boils down to how you deliver your content. First, consider the format of your PD: is the trainer using the standard lecture model? When asked on Twitter for their worst PD experiences, the vast majority of teachers cited the horrors of attending a PD where the presenter read the slides of a PowerPoint presentation. By using video PD, you can dramatically reduce your school’s budget for professional development and increase teacher engagement… worth a try, right? Here’s how to get started with video professional development to keep teachers happy, entertained and informed.
