Innovative Video In Education (iVIE) is a service of the San Diego County Office of Education.
The iVIE Awards aim (among other things) to increase student achievement through visual literacy, foster the use of engaging learning environments, support innovating teachers, ... and are divided into categories of three educational levels: elementary, middle school, high school.
A separate category is not aimed at students: the "New Video in the Classroom category, replacing the Teacher Category, is now open to teachers, media specialists or other technology support providers. The objective of this video is to document the process of creating a classroom video."

Using Video in Teacher Education, Volume 10 (Advances in Research on Teaching)
This book features contribution from people who have developed and used video in teacher education. The focus is on video as opposed to other technology (e-mail, etc.) and its use in teacher education. The video can be stored on videotapes, CD-Rom, DVD, or computer drives, and it can be used in either preservice or inservice teacher education/professional development programs.
Contributors explain the nature of the video they use in their teacher education programs or courses and talk about how they use it, focusing in particular on principles for: (1) making the videos (decisions about how and what to capture on video, the degree to which the teaching should be scripted, whether it should be shown uninterrupted or segmented and edited, and so on), and (2) principles for using the video in the teacher education program (why and how it is used at what points in the program, how viewings are structured and scaffolded by the teacher educator, and so on).
