EDUCATOR REVIEWS

Case Studies1
Alfonso, @educatoral
6th grade Science Teacher, Chimacum Middle School, Washington

We were looking for ways to streamline our PLC work. We have been using a lesson study model where each PLC team investigated a student problem then designed a lesson to address the problem. By observing the lesson, PLC members took notes on how well the lesson was helping the students. After the lesson, the PLC team met to go over the lesson and decide on any changes that could better address the problem. To conduct a lesson study required time outside the classroom, which means getting subs. There was little to no money for subs and subs were difficult to come by so we tried recording lessons that we could share with our PLC members on a day after the lesson was taught. By recording the lesson the PLC teams could meet after school to observe the lesson and discuss how well it helped students. The IRIS connect Discovery Kit made recording the lesson so much easier. All we had to do was start the recording and the Swivl base and the device did the recording for us! The Swivl base follows the microphone to capture what the teacher wanted the PLC to see. Then using the IRIS Connect platform the teacher shares the video with his or her PLC team! Voila! PLC members can watch the video then meet to discuss.
