The Digital Lesson Observation (DLO) General Plan is paired with the school's exclusive lesson examples channel (i.e., the exclusive lesson observation platform), allowing all classrooms to conduct digital lessons observation. When observing the lesson, the experts or teacher teams give feedbacks using the Sokrates Lecture Observation app to mark, take photos, record videos/audio, and text record. After the lesson is over, the data recorded by all lesson observers will be automatically collected, providing the most effective tool for lesson observation activities.
Overview of the environment and equipment of the Digital Lesson Observation General Plan
In general, when conducting a public lesson observation, the observer uses a paper lesson observation form or a lesson observation notebook to record the key points of the observed teaching process on paper. With the digital lesson observation method of this plan, the lesson observation experts and teacher teams will use the Sokrates Lecture Observation app to record key points, not only in text, but also in the concept of timeline. After marking the time, they can take pictures or record audio/videos of the moment, allowing them to record the lesson in a more diversified way and correspond to the time point of the lesson.
If you use a paper-based lesson recorder, it is not very convenient for you to compile, summarize, and share your opinions. The data recorded using the Sokrates Lecture Observation app can be used to generate a specific multimedia observation record form at the end of the lesson, so the teacher who conducts the public lesson can see the feedback from all the observers. Therefore, the recording method of DLO is a specific way to enhance the value of lesson observation for the benefit of both the lesson giver and the lesson viewer.
If a lesson is recorded, whether by mobile phone or video camera, it can be uploaded to the school's exclusive lesson examples channel (lesson observation platform), and the video can be integrated with the lesson observation data to become a documentary video with data records. These videos are important treasures for the teacher professional development teams in the school, and can be categorized, searched, and stored, solving the problem of scattered and difficult to manage recorded videos in the past.
The Digital Lesson Observation General plan is composed of Sokrates Exclusive Lesson Examples Channel Management Service and the General Lesson Observation Pack. The descriptions are as follows:
Sokrates Exclusive Lesson Examples Channel is a classic video storage service provided by TEAM Model Cloud, allowing school members to conduct online lesson observation and the collection of the school's classic lessons. Each school has its own independent exclusive lesson examples channel to ensure the security of the school's lesson observation data.
If a school wants to carry out management work, it must purchase Sokrates Exclusive Lesson Examples Channel Management Service. Administrators can view reports and lesson observation record analysis, conduct video management (delete/produce, etc.), lesson resource management, member management, and add general video lesson examples. DLO General Plan must first purchase the Sokrates Exclusive Lesson Examples Channel Management Service before you can start a digital lesson observation activity.
