Looking closely can happen anywhere.
This process can happen anywhere. The facilitator should have an eye toward equity, access and full participation when designing or choosing a space with the group. In Philadelphia, teachers have met since 1978 in teacher centers and each other’s homes after school to describe student work, have reflective conversations, and make together.
Google Hangout also provides a fantastic, engaging meeting space for a group of teachers from all over the country, especially with the easy screen share, YouTube sharing capabilities, collaborative documents, and the chat option.
I’ve also had the experience of using this process via webinar, with people both chatting and talking during the different rounds.
