Check out this great video idea described in the blog post, A Productive / Creative / Reflective Classroom.  As part of his teacher inquiry into providing parents with opportunities to connect with their children and their learning Assistant Principal Mark Herring has used timelapse photography showing a day in the classroom, with subtitles. 

I know as a parent, I would value this window into what's happening in my child's day and the opportunities for conversations about learning it provides. As a teacher - it looks like an easy and effective way to engage with whānau.

What are your thoughts? How are you using video to connect with your school community?

    I enjoyed watching this with the sub-titles providing the commentary. Loved seeing the teacher working around the class in different ways over the course of the day and the kids seemed very focused. I also loved the tree in the classroom! I think this is an excellent way to help parents get the flavour of what is happening in the room.
