Teaching Channel is a video showcase—on the Internet and TV—of inspiring and effective teaching practices across the country designed to revolutionize how teachers learn so they can improve student outcomes. Educate Texas is its first partnership in Texas.
Across its network of schools, Educate Texas supports the implementation of high-level instructional strategies that are research-based, including Common Instructional Framework, Instructional Rounds, Project-Based Learning, and College-Ready Tools, such as the Literacy Design Collaborative. Educate Texas College-Ready Network has refined these signature best practices to advance student achievement to a level that exceeds the state comparison group.
Teachers—and quality teaching—are critical to ensuring that all students have a rigorous educational experience, which prepares them for college and career.
Teaching Channel provides teachers and administrators with high quality, accessible, and on-demand examples of teaching and learning. Educate Texas is now able to individualize the professional development that teachers receive based on subject, grade level, years of experience and regardless of geographic location.
Providing Professional Development On Demand
One of the unique aspects of Teaching Channel is the ability for teachers to film themselves, and, then, share videos with colleagues and mentors who can annotate videos with personalized feedback for improving teaching practice.
Transforming Teaching and Learning
Teaching Channel offers Educate Texas with an organizational platform to highlight best practices from our college-ready network of ECHS and T-STEM Academies. This resource allows Texas teachers to connect with their colleagues across the state and the nation to improve their practice.
The Educate Texas Teaching Channel site will feature three distinct types of videos, including:
- Videos of teachers from the Educate Texas network
- Videos selected from the national network relevant to Educate Texas schools
- Videos filmed by Educate Texas teachers in their classrooms
By enabling teachers to film their own classrooms and share their videos with colleagues and mentors, Educate Texas and Teaching Channel are collaborating to build an innovative platform for the next generation of professional development.
