From the time that computer technology became part of the school environment, teachers have been encouraged to integrate technology into their instructional practices. Why not use such valuable tools to extend professional development practices as well? This is a question that the authors raised while working together on digital video staff development training for faculty at Georgia State University. The authors try out some of their ideas and processes by mentoring Jaime Weingart, a first-year teacher, at Trinity School and integrated digital video equipment into her professional development. This article describes how the authors put together a mentoring action plan and how they implemented this new mentorship method. It also presents tips on how to effectively mentor beginning teachers.
