Free Technology for Teachers
Next Vista for Learning is the first video sharing site that I recommend to teachers looking for alternatives to YouTube. Videos on Next Vista are made by teachers and students for teachers and students. Throughout the school year Next Vista hosts video creation contests for students and teachers.

This last weekend I was in New York presenting at FOCUS100. I also was a mentor for the 24 hour mobile hackathon along with Tara Walker. The attendees were trying to create a mobile app (responsive site, or a native app, it didn't matter) in a single day (we were up all night.)

As we study different countries and regions, my students are videotaping questions they have and sharing them with English classes in those areas of the world. Students in both of our classes get experience with an authentic audience, and my students generate more geography knowledge.

Sharing the Addiction - Creating one addict at a time
The feeling of being 'exposed' while teaching is something that we have all experienced while being observed. As the article says, not everyone is a good coach so half the challenge I guess is finding that person that you are comfortable with and then being open to changing your practice.
