Schools and districts are increasingly pairing video with supports like embedded assessments, mentoring, and learning communities to enhance professional development. Video’s objectivity, ability to provide real-time feedback, and teachers’ increasing comfort level with the medium are making it a go-to tool for improving teacher practice.

In this chat, two experts in video technology and teacher learning will take your questions on the latest trends in using video to improve educator collaboration and classroom practice.

Candice Meyers, video engagement consultant, co-founder of Teaching Channel
Misty Mitchell, media and educational technology specialist, Hudson Middle School, Lufkin, Tex.
