Student Teaching Seminar 2.0

My student teachers take part in an online seminar. I feel as though I need to make more of a connection with these student teachers. Each semester, I've been giving the same feedback to the students; engage all students, develop a system of classroom management, etc. I never actually visit the student teachers in their classroom and never actually meet them face to face. Therefore, I never get a real sense of what they are experiencing in the classroom (observing their CT, learning new strategies, etc.). I would like to make a connection with my student teachers in the beginning of the term to "show" them several very important strategies. Here are my initial ideas:
1. Video clips of effective teaching online (ustream?)
2. Online synchronous chat as we view the clips - discussion about strategies, critique the teaching...
3. Initial online chat to "discuss" ideas (questions from discussion board) so that the ST can intro themselves
4. Host another chat after the first video assignment - reflecting on new ideas for implementation.
5. Students post a clip of their video to the Net (course shell online???) and work with a partner to critique it??? (This is a stretch - what if they don't have the means to clip, produce, and upload their videos...)
6. The time change has got me....time for bed! Will think more and blog later.
