Todd Seymour Interactive Media Instructor, State Trained Mentor Eastland Career Center RESA VIDEO TIPS
TODAY’S GOALS Understand the purpose of the RESA video observation Discuss lesson planning strategies to maximize electronic observation Explore delivery specifics for best results Explain Video Upload Specifications Acceptable File Formats Segmentation
THE PURPOSE OF THE VIDEO OBSERVATION Show effective Instructional delivery by showing: Teacher planning Teacher’s understanding of scope and sequence Communication of student objectives Rapport with students Provide evidence to be cited in your reflection
PLAN & PRACTICE Practice during RE 2 Year Review with mentor Make objectives observable and heard somewhere in the video segment. Have weekly objectives posted.
Beginning of the year Obtain District Video Release – Make a “Good Faith Effort” Know your students Explain the purpose of the video to the students. Day or two beforehand. Tell students to ignore the camera
DURING VIDEO LESSON Be obvious point out materials in the room or on the whiteboard so the videographer can capture it. Don’t rush Deliver a normal lesson Even when things go wrong – it’s apart of teaching. Be yourself.
VIDEO LESSON PLANNING Proficiently show the events of instruction in a small amount of time. Tips Avoid new routines Avoid too much content Use your best stuff Have end in mind Be calm, clear and concise.
BEGINNING / MIDDLE / END Intro.- Make Connections, State Objectives New Content Acquisition – Activities, Cooperative Learning Assessment – Formative, Exit Ticket, Project.
WHO TO GO TO School or district technology staff or administrators Another teacher who has recorded video in the past Your Program Coordinator or facilitator who can identify potential resources in the school as well as assist you with video recording Web-based resource collections (e.g., YouTube) to help identify recording devices and tips on producing video.
Video Lesson must be from the year your are being assessed. You must submit an unedited video Lesson should be filmed in its entirety Have no pauses, breaks, jerky video, focus changes, and periods of little or no activity. If the recording is stopped for any reason you need to film a new lesson.
The segment(s) must be at least 2 minutes, but no more than 15 minutes in length. You may choose two segments from the entire video to be scored. This selected portion of the lesson is the only portion of the video that will be scored. Assessors will not be able to watch any other portion that is not selected by candidates. You can choose one segment without penalty as long as it fits the 2-15 minute criteria A video split between two different days will also be disqualified.
THE FOLLOWING ARE EXAMPLES OF ACCEPTABLE VIDEOS AND SEGMENTATION FOR TASKS 1 AND 3:
A NINTH-GRADE SPANISH TEACHER FILMS A 30- MINUTE LESSON ON VERB CONJUGATION. THE TEACHER WILL UPLOAD THE ENTIRE 30 MINUTES USING THE MEDIA UPLOADER. AFTER VIEWING THE VIDEO, HE DECIDES THE BEST EVIDENCE OF HIS TEACHING PRACTICE IS THE MIDDLE PORTION OF THE LESSON, SO HE INDICATES WITHIN THE RESA SOFTWARE THAT THE ASSESSOR SHOULD WATCH THE SEGMENT OF THE VIDEO STARTING AT MINUTE 7 AND ENDING AT MINUTE 22.
A SCIENCE TEACHER FILMS HER 55-MINUTE TWELFTH- GRADE AP PHYSICS CLASS. SHE UPLOADS THE ENTIRE 55- MINUTE VIDEO BUT, AFTER VIEWING THE LESSON, DECIDES THAT THE BEST EVIDENCE OF HER TEACHING PRACTICE IS DURING THE BEGINNING OF THE LESSON WHEN SHE IS EXPLAINING THE CONCEPTS THE STUDENTS ARE LEARNING, AND AT THE END OF THE LESSON WHEN THE STUDENTS EXPLAIN THE RESULTS OF THEIR SMALL DISCUSSION GROUP PROBLEMS. SO THE TEACHER INDICATES WITHIN THE RESA SOFTWARE THAT THE ASSESSOR SHOULD SCORE THE SEGMENTS OF THE VIDEO STARTING AT MINUTE 2 AND ENDING AT MINUTE 10, AND STARTING AT MINUTE 40 AND ENDING AT MINUTE 48 (A TOTAL OF 15 MINUTES).
UPLOADING REQUIREMENTS File Format MP4, M4V, WMV, AVI, or MOV Review your video Reflection What assessors cannot see Chalkboard, SmartBoard, handouts, posters, etc.
OTHER TIPS Ensure that you have the appropriate permission from the parents or caregivers of students who appear on the video. Make arrangements for the necessary video and audio equipment well in advance. Align the height of the camera with the tallest student while sitting down. Ensure the lights are on and windows are covered. Plug in the recording device ahead of time and/or ensure all batteries are charged. Use large and empty memory cards. Try not to introduce routines or procedures with which your students are unfamiliar.
OTHER TIPS Use zooming or rotate the camera to a new position to capture what you or the students are doing. Use a sturdy tripod to ensure a steady image. Do not have someone use a handheld camera. Know where you and your students will be located in the classroom during the activities. The video should capture interactions between you and your students and your responses to student comments, questions, and needs. The video should feature either the whole class or a targeted group of students within the class. The teacher and students should be visible and clearly heard on the video recording submitted.
SUMMARY Prepare - Obtain Permission, Know Your students Plan, Practice & Review Show active teaching and learning Review your recording, include anything that was missed in your written reflection so assessors can give credit. Be calm, clear and concise. GET HELP WITH TECHNICAL ISSUES. DISTRICT SUPPORT! GOOD LUCK!
