“Video will completely change the way we do professional learning.”

To improve our teaching methods, we must understand what our current teaching methods are. This is impossible to do base only on our own perceptions or even feedback from observers. A classroom is a dynamic environment and there is always a lot going on that can be missed in the moment.

The solution, according to renowned professional development expert Jim Knight, is video. In Focus on Teaching, Knight turns to the vast and disruptive potential of video recording to reach new levels of excellence in schools. This book builds on Knight’s prior bestsellers to show how every classroom can easily benefit from setting up a camera and hitting “record”.  The book includes

  • Strategies teachers, instructional coaches, teams, and administrators can use to get the most out of using video
  • Tips for ensuring that video recordings are used in accordance with ethical standards and teacher/student comfort levels
  • Protocols, data gathering forms, and many other tools to get the most out of watching video

With Jim Knight’s expertise and the latest in video technology, positive change in your classroom will be immediate and long-lasting.
