The Teachscape Channel is a collection of high-quality videos drawn from Teachscape’s Professional Learning Suite content library.
- High-quality videos of classroom practice and expert commentary can be viewed and shared among educators
- Top educational experts including Charlotte Danielson, Carol Ann Tomlinson, and nearly 100 others contribute commentary and research-based insight
- Pre-populated library of more than 200 videos are organized and tagged by subject, grade, instructional strategy, keyword, and featured expert
Site Channels in Teachscape Learn allow districts to create collections of local best-practice videos that educators can view, share, and comment on. With Site Channels, schools in the district can:
- Develop and curate libraries of their own best practices
- Organize libraries by subject, grade level, standards, competencies, professional learning communities, or any other factor
- Tag videos with key words so users can easily search for relevant video clips
All users in Teachscape Learn have access to My Channel, where they can store their own “best-of” collection of videos.
- Create user’s own collection of videos from the Teachscape Channel or Site Channel
- Videos recommended by peers, coaches, principals, or professional development facilitators for group video review and commentary are stored in My Channel
My Video is a secure space managed by users for their own personal lesson videos and artifacts.
- Users can capture video of their own lessons (with their own capture devices or optional Teachscape camera kits) and upload videos with artifacts
- Videos can be shared with observers, peers, or coaches for lesson review
- Videos can also be kept private and used solely for self-reflection
