Live coaching hits the headlines in Wales
Duffryn High School in Newport was recently featured on ITV News Wales, in a report on their innovative approach to teacher development with IRIS Connect’s live teacher coaching and teacher reflection tools.
ITV Reporter, Tom Sheldrick, visited the school to find out how they are using the IRIS Connect’s lesson observation technology as part of their school improvement programme.
A key focus of the report was on the use of live teacher coaching and the positive impact of receiving immediate feedback during a lesson, rather than “a list of pros and cons at a later date”.
As one of the 1,000 schools using IRIS Connect in the UK, including 38 in Wales, Duffryn High School is an example of the move towards the use of supportive video technology for teacher development. As mentioned in the report, the importance of placing teachers in control of the video lesson observation process, through individual accounts, strict permissioning and the use of a secure cloud-based platform, is paramount to the success of this approach.
