How I Use It
I mostly use this to watch different practices come to life in the classroom. I find that I often want to see what I learn during professional development in a real classroom, and Teaching Channel does just that. I have also used this in my classroom to show my students my expectations of their behaviors. For example, when conducting our first Socratic Seminar we watched a Teaching Channel video of a Socratic Seminar, and my students knew exactly what to expect.
My Take
I really do think this is a great product, however, the videos are very long. I don't find that I have enough time to watch several hour long videos. Overall, I like the product, but it could be better with shorter videos.
