Classroom observation platform adds video options

Teachscape Reflect Video expands the use of the platform from solely using Teachscape’s Lucy Pano Camera Kit to include most video-recording devices, including Teachscape’s new Mini Camera Kit. The kit is a low-cost, non-intrusive video recording system that includes a wide-angle lens attached to an optional iPod Touch, a condenser microphone, and an adjustable, lightweight tabletop tripod.

The new clipping feature allows educators to save a clip of specific teaching moments or sections of best practices in action. Administrators can create usage, observation and participation reports that track number of videos captured, comments, shared videos, and more.

These new features, along with Reflect’s existing functionalities provide a video-based tool for the observation and evaluation of teaching practices, within a secure online platform.
