  • Teachers should be creating their own Lessoncasts to share with one another. School leaders hired the teachers in their district because they were the most creative and best qualified professionals that they interviewed… In every district, there are numerous very creative teachers. They should be sharing their knowledge!

This focus tells me a lot moreabout what how much content and pedagogy my student teachers know. A paper copy cannot speak to you like a lessoncast can.
