How could video-based lesson observation help?
At ONVU Learning we’re always looking for new ways to link schools up to solve problems by sharing video footage, and the area of transition was one that we were interested in researching with schools. We were therefore very excited when we were asked by a trust in the North East of England to help them with the issue.
Our approach sets out to make the most of our strengths – unobtrusive video recording that shows the whole of a classroom coupled with easy sharing of content between schools and teachers that eliminates travel time. We’re already sharing footage between the UK and India and our cloud-based solution makes it simple for UK intra-school transfer.
We’re looking to enable secondary teachers to observe year 6 pupils for the rest of this academic year in feeder schools – looking at their routines, the level of ability they are showing, especially in core subjects and how they work individually and as groups. Teachers from both schools will be able to observe footage individually and together – the second route adding still greater depth and understanding.
