Article + Video = Using Technology For Professional Learning

I'm working with teachers on expanding their assessment options and in doing some research, I read this article from Edutopia.  The title is: Ten Takeaway Tips for Using Authentic Assessment in Your School.
What I liked is that the online article has embedded video examples of some of the tips. Check out the article and the videos.  

Videos are one way to authentically assess your students and yourself.  Using digital video cameras, like the Flip Camera that can be purchased for $100 - $200, make developing quality videos easy.  If you haven't tried videotaping your students, give it a try.  It is a "keeping it simple" way to integrate technology in so many different ways and provides rich assessment data for you and your students.
