    3. 3. Not Enough Student Voice Rehearsal videos show teachers doing most of the talking with little opportunity for student voice.
    4. 4. https://twitter.com/alfiekohn/statuses/420171255828869120 https://www.teachingchannel.org/videos/strategies-for-student-centered-discussion
    5. 5. Content ==> Engagement Start with content information (e.g. 5 minutes) and then engage students (they do most of the talking) for the rest of the video http://edtech2.boisestate.edu/robertsona/506/finalProject/ DividingFractions.html http://www.flickr.com/photos/audiolucistore/740373 1050/
    6. 6. Engaging Students Active engagement of students in their own understanding of concepts, skills, and/or processes related to the learning objectives.  Instruction with student-teacher and/or student-student interaction  An opportunity for teacher to respond to student questions, concerns, or needs.  Choose clips that reveal student thinking, analysis, and judgment. https://www.teachingchannel.org/videos/improving-teacher-practice
    7. 7. Interact with Students Good for teacher to roam to interact with small groups talking with students. That would mean someone panning with the camera, presumably the cooperating teacher. http://debbiediller.wordpress.com/tag/small-group-area
    8. 8. Deepening Student Learning  Highlight in the video how you listen to students and respond in such a way that you are supporting them and building on their thinking and ideas.  Deepening student understanding will depend upon the strategies you have chosen.  Focus a discussion following a mini-lecture rather than the lecture itself (which can be described in writing). Discussion should represent an opportunity for students to display or further their depth of understanding. http://www.edutopia.org/math-social-activity-cooperative-learning-video
    9. 9. Path to Deeper Learning https://www.teachingchannel.org/videos/teaching-higher-order-thinking-skills
    10. 10. Avoid  A clip filled with students:  answering yes/no questions  reciting information  recall of facts, practicing narrow set of skills  reading aloud without conversation  writing silently will not reveal how you deepened their understanding of the content presented. http://www.sde.ct.gov/sde/lib/sde/pdf/pressroom/ct_c ommission_on_ed_achievement_report.pdf http://www.flickr.com/photos/cristiano_betta/3159607097

    12. 12. Too soft or unclear
    13. 13. Narrative If student responses are unclear, teacher will need to include that in their narrative associated with the video.
    14. 14. Example of Narrative Student #3 asks the question "how do you calculate the hypotenuse of a right triangle" or student #4 responds to the teacher's question with c2 = a2 + b2.
    15. 15. Avoid Positioning Camera Behind Students Positioning of the camera with built-in mic behind students may pick up the teacher's voice if loud enough. However student voice often unclear.
    16. 16. Wireless Microphone  Great for teachers to roam around classroom speaking at a normal voice  The lapel microphone will not clearly capture what students are saying unless it is pointed near them  A wireless microphone must be set up precisely or it may not capture any audio at all.  Both transmitter & receiver should have newish batteries, set to the same frequency, and be turned on.  The antenna & microphone must be snugly clipped to the transmitter  Plug one end of the curly audio cable into the receiver’s MIKE OUT jack and the other end directly to a video camera’s external MIC jack. If you are using an iPhone, the adapter cable is also required.

    18. 18. Position to the Side or Front Need to position the camera to the side or towards the front capturing the teacher and students together. http://joshblackman.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/IMAG0286.jpg

    24. 24. Editing Video All videos need to be continuous (no cutting out in between) although start and end segments can be trimmed.
    25. 25. General Advice  Avoid zooming and make sure you the teacher and students are in the video.  The teacher needs to have a precise lesson that has been rehearsed several times over.  Be dynamic, fast-paced, and make sure students are engaged under your direction.  Rehearse your lesson with other students in your class.
