TeachingChannel is a non-profit website run by and for teachers that shares effective pedagogical practices through the use of videos and PLN support. “Watch, Share, Learn” is the mantra of the site, and TeachingChannel does a superb job of supporting that creed. This site is an example of teacher collaboration at its best. Any teacher around the world can use TeachingChannel to access high-quality videos that demonstrate teaching practices, videoed in actual classrooms. Going beyond pedagogical theory, TeachingChannel offers real-world demonstrations, or “How To” examples, so that every viewing teacher can then employ these same practices in their own classrooms. Videos can run as long as one hour, but these videos are divided into segments highlighting discrete steps in a lesson, so viewers can choose three- to five-minute segments that address just that portion. TeachingChannel also supports Professional Learning Networks by connecting 670,000+ teachers through its website, arranged by grades taught and subject specialty. This is the added strength of the site that elevates it to the R in SAMR. TeachingChannel supports collaboration in a robust, effective manner.
