"If you scroll ahead five to 10 years," says Norman Atkins, founder and CEO of Teacher U, a new teacher-training partnership between Hunter College and three charter school networks (Uncommon Schools, KIPP, and Achievement First), "my assumption is that, as a matter of course, teachers are routinely videotaping their classrooms. They are getting feedback from their principal and fellow teachers and, as a result, their teaching is improving dramatically. The most meaningful professional development is to walk into another teacher's classroom and see how he teaches. Video provides this window into other classrooms that teachers so badly need."
