Jim Knight – a research associate in the University of Kansas Center for Research on Learning and director of the Kansas Coaching Project – has spent nearly twenty years studying how teachers get better at teaching.
Recently, Edthena CEO Adam Geller sat down with Jim to talk about his new book – Better Conversations: Coaching Ourselves and Each Other to Be More Credible, Caring, and Connected – and about how video can support a teacher coaching process. During their discussion, Jim touches on just how influential he thinks video is as a tool for teacher development and learning.
“It’s extremely powerful and a disruptive technology that has great potential, not just professionally, but personally,” Jim says. “I’ve come to believe that video is the most significant technological innovation in education in maybe decades.”
