Alright. Welcome back, ladies and gentlemen.
We are gonna be doing some of filming things today, like we have done in the past.
Because of professional development at Kettle Moraine,
teachers have the skills and the tools that they need
to really meet the needs of all of our students.
Everyone is working towards creating a culture of growth,
and taking risks to interact and engage with their class as a whole.
At Kettle Moraine, we have a vision of continuous growth.
Whether that’s students, teachers,
it’s about how can we get there together.
Visible learning is a strategy where
staff will actually get behind a camera and have the opportunity to look at themselves
and to watch and reflect on their teaching practices.
It helps me see what the learning looks like in the classroom through a different lens.
We did a few test filming sessions
and I saw students all over the place, as far as engagement.
And so, for my goal, I chose to try to increase student engagement through use of vocabulary words.
More vocabulary, I’ve defined as more engaged.
When students walk into the classroom,
it is nice to let them know,
hey, I’m going to be filming you today.
They are all part of the process and I share my goal with them as well
I’m usually filming about thirty minutes of discussion time;
so I can see who’s really interacting,
if they’re writing things down, if they’re drawing,
if they’re showing each other different things.
– [Woman] The swivel is set up for an iPhone or an iPad.
sometimes teachers choose to have the camera on students
and then, sometimes they will put the camera on themselves.
So that really just depends on what their goal is.
– We often fall into the habit of making assumptions about
what’s going on in the classroom.
And visible learning gives us a chance to see our habits and our patterns
and recognize maybe why they aren’t effective all the time.
Just having a little bit of a shift in our practice
can lead to gains on the students’ part.
– It’s really important for a teacher to have the ability to reflect on
what they’re seeing initially.
It just allows teachers to get comfortable with experience.
– I try to watch those films on the same day they’ve been recorded.
Just so they’re fresh in my mind.
What I do is I watch it through once without really tracking anything.
The second time through is really when I start to track.
I’m gonna stop the video every minute and tally
which students are authentically engaged and which students are not.
I’m writing down which vocabulary words they’re using
and what I was seeing on film was a lot
of non-engagement with their peers.
– After a teacher watches their video,
they meet with the coach
to talk through some of their ideas.
To get another set of eyes either on what they think
that they’re seeing in the classroom or some possible solutions.
– In order to change the students’ interaction in class,
I needed to give a little bit more direct instruction on
how to interact with your peers and how to use science vocabulary words.
– Individually, the teacher is going to be the one
that determines what that success looks like.
– Visible learning gives us a chance
to reflect on our practice,
to align what we believe is happening in the classroom
to what really is happening.
And also, it gives us a chance
to adapt to reach as many students as possible.
– [Bearded Teacher] We are all trying to grow
in our professional career and it’s all gonna help the students at the end of the day.
And that’s really the goal of the whole teaching process.
