A Collection of Classroom Videos to Use in Your Professional Development and More!

Today I was preparing a professional development for innovative learning walks and was looking for video(s) of classroom lessons that participants could watch as if they were visiting a classroom so they could practice the learning walk protocol. I turned to my personal learning network for suggestions when I Tweeted the following (which also feeds into my Facebook account).
Lisa Velmer Nielsen What's a good site to find free videos of teachers teaching?

Instantly a stream of suggestions came flooding in.

Here they are:

I like the California K-12 Technology Showcase too. The teachers are all interviewed on camera and do a great job of walking you through their class projects.

I love the MMM videos also because not only does the teacher show you how to teach the math module, but it also includes an actual video of how it played out in class: http://www.mmmproject.org/video_matrix.htm
Try the Trashketball video!

The California site though appeals more to our needs both as an elementary school and design of lessons

I took one of the California Technology Showcase ideas (Vocabucasting) - and turned it into an entire workshop for teachers, showing them how to do it. http://ctapvocabucasting.pbworks.com/
