Using technology to promote a commitment to reflection in the classroom
The Summer 2009 issue of the Journal of Staff Development has a fascinating article titled: "See me, hear me, coach me." by Marcia L. Rock and several other authors. The article showcases a success story of a 2nd grade teacher who is being coached via Skype and a bluetooth ear piece in real time as she teaches a lesson.While part of me marvelled at this particular use of technology and coaching, I wondered about how feasible it is to be reflective in the midst of experiences that tinker with the demands of life performance as teachers or professional developers. As I tried to put myself in the place of Mrs. Applebee, I questioned my ability to both use the corrective and encouraging feedback I was receiving, and also reflect on its meaning. I encourage you to read this article and share your thoughts. The online version of the article is available on www.nsdc.org/news/jsd.
