Over 150 schools are using our video technologyfor lesson observation , these include Colleges, Secondary Schools and Primary Schools.
If you wish to visit or talk to a school using video for lesson observation please email us and we will send you a list of nearby schools.
St. Joseph’s College
The College has used Classwatch very effectively to enhance teacher training and students’ learning. Teachers use the room to record their lessons and then review their performance with other staff to improve the quality of their lessons.
The feedback from the staff is always very positive. ‘I have learnt more in 30 minutes about my teaching than I have learnt in the last 8 years’ is a common reaction.
The excerpts from some lessons are recorded and put on the VLE for the students to access and review and revisit the keys parts of their lessons. Parents are able to see the key points of the lessons and help and encourage their sons’ to learn more effectively.
Overall Classwatch has had big impact on the way teachers teach and students learn. A very good use of limited resources to improve student learning.
Kevin Dwyer, Deputy Headteacher, St. Joseph’s College.
Chadwell Heath Academy
“Classwatch is an invaluable training resource that has given us the ability to record outstanding teaching in our dedicated classroom. With the purchase of a mobile unit we have now expanded this scheme and can film in any classroom around the school.”
Edwin Preece, Deputy Headteacher, Chadwell Heath Academy.
Lynch Hill primary school
Lynch Hill primary school in Slough have cameras in all key stage 2 classrooms.
They’re used, by agreement, for lesson observation and for pupil discipline where, she says, the effect has been dramatic.
“The teachers feel very supported. This is a challenging school and I have several
teachers who use the system regularly, reviewing incidents and settling arguments.”
Pupil behaviour, walk-in theft and, of course, the possibility of supporting or dismissing
complaints against a teacher – all are given as reasons for having classroom video.
