This video explores the importance of reflection for teacher learning and describes the benefits of one strategy for educators: recording classroom instruction. Recording and replaying classroom footage allows educators to see moments of student learning, helping them understand what went well in a lesson and what can be improved next time. Watching themselves teach, and discussing this footage with colleagues, helps teachers consider how their instructional choices affect their students.
By carefully considering their teaching practices, educators learn that reflection is not just for students; they too can take risks and try new approaches in the classroom.
