I recently considered having one of my classes videotaped in order to get feedback and be able to observe myself in the classroom, so the website article “The benefits of adding video to teacher evaluation” caught my attention. A two year Harvard study found that benefits of videotaping teachers included more specific and actionable feedback as to what is going well and what could be improved.  As well, teachers could see what all of their students were doing in the classroom.  I think it would definitely be important to really look at levels of engagement, which is hard to do because one is usually juggling tasks when teaching.  Although it can be daunting to see oneself in action on film, I will definitely go through with this plan to be videotaped in the classroom.
