What classroom video is really about: Our latest SmartBlog

As you've probably seen, Insight has been working closely with SmartBrief Education to share the latest data on classroom-video-observation-smartblogthe use of classroom video for educator growth. 

In February, we released A game changer: Using video to promote high performance in the classroom, which also features a practical guide for implementing classroom video in your district or school.  

From self-reflection to coaching to even observation and evaluation, the potential of the technology to promote teachers' practices is great - but it's not without controversy.

So earlier this month, we followed the report with a SmartBlog, Video in educator effectiveness: What it's really about - and what it's not

The post highlights some of the most compelling research, like 91% of teachers who responded to a SmartBrief poll said that filming their instruction would help them improve their practices. It also responds directly to the most common questions and objections - like privacy - I hear about the use of video.
