Video observation and feedback tool

Part of the Great Teaching Toolkit

Summary

Feedback can be one of the most powerful ways to improve goal-directed performance. The Great Teaching Toolkit has prioritised the development of more effective feedback tools to:

  • Help teachers see their own classroom in a way that is broader, clearer and more accurate than their raw experience can provide.
  • Focus attention on the areas that matter most to student learning, with a feedback rubric aligned to the Model for Great Teaching.
  • Embed habits and motivate improvement through regular cycles of feedback.

How the video observation & feedback tools work.

The video observation feature is another way you can bring the GTT to life in your classroom – another tool in your school or college’s professional development toolkit. Each teacher using the GTT can record snippets of themselves teaching, with nothing more than a smartphone or iPad.

Once recorded and saved in the “My Videos” area, any snippets will remain private to the teacher in question. From there, they can be shared, perhaps with a Head of Department, observer or coach, or with a team – a professional learning community, working together on a certain Dimension or Element of the Model for Great Teaching.

From there, the teacher and their trusted colleagues will be able to watch, tag and comment on the video, working particularly on one Dimension or Element at a time.

You and your team will be able to use this to facilitate low-stakes but high-impact conversations around strengths, areas for improvement, and strategies to try in the classroom.

Use our video observation tool to:

  • Capture evidence of your own teaching practice, without the need for specialist equipment.
  • Reflect on your practice using our observation rubric.
  • Share videos with trusted colleagues, and receive feedback aligned with our Model for Great Teaching.
  • Engage in collaborative conversations with peers and mentors to improve your practice.
