What do they expect to see?

So someone somewhere thinks it might be a good idea to videotape teachers in the classroom.

I wonder what they expect to see?

I wonder if they’re able to distinguish good practice from bad practice, or good teachers from bad teachers, and if so, how?

“The best way of learning is to see yourself and have somebody help you.”

Wrong. It is a myth that if you’re not succeeding (whether we’re talking about teachers or students) it is because you’re not working hard enough.

The best way of learning, is to have a process that enables you to make good decisions about your learning.


Finally, if videotaping was the best way for teachers to learn it would also be the best way for students to learn.¬†Yet they’re not suggesting that students be videotaped, I wonder why not?
