Though this blog entry is to showcase Canon’s newest digital-cinema-bad-boy, the Vimeo video within the entry, halfway down the page, is a beautifully-told love story. Great cinematography, great story telling, and jaw-dropping visuals!
To this day I still cringe whenever I remember myself in math class at any grade level. Sure, I cringe with memories of almost all of my classes, but math, ufff.
Dan’s talk makes me want to be in a math classroom like his! Truly!
I love this video for its simplicity, and for how able it is at showcasing a different approach to the common text-book approach to teaching young minds.
I never thought of this before, but creating a support structure for faculty to review their practice in an informal “safe” and nurturing space is a great thing to think about. Usually schools are interested in output, professionalism and practice; the teacher is observed, accounted for by HR and evaluated against class scores and the like.
This practice would give the teacher to interpret their own performance and a group of peers to offer support and a space to celebrate what is good about their individual practice. Worth thinking about when creating an institutional PD program.
Fenomenal breakdown as to the importance of the use of video content in any classroom!!!
