CARLETON COLLEGE USE OF VIDEO TAPES IN TRAINING SECONDARY SCHOOL TEACHERS.
Carleton Coll., Northfield, Minn.
THE PURPOSES OF THIS ASSOCIATED COLLEGES OF THE MIDWEST PILOT PROJECT WERE (1) TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF USING PORTABLE, LOW-COST TV EQUIPMENT TO RECORD SPONTANEOUS CLASSROOM TEACHING-LEARNING ACTIVITIES CONDUCTED BY EXPERIENCED TEACHERS, (2) TO PRODUCE SOME EDITED VIDEO TAPES FOR USE IN PROFESSIONAL EDUCATION COURSES, AND (3) TO EXPERIMENT WITH VIDEO TAPES IN APPRAISING THE PERFORMANCE OF STUDENT TEACHERS. THE APPROXIMATELY 300 HOURS OF RECORDED ACTIVITY COVER VARIOUS INSTRUCTIONAL TACTICS FOR SLOW AND GIFTED LEARNERS, ILLUSTRATE THE EFFECTS OF TEACHER ATTITUDES AND OF DIFFERENT APPROACHES TO DISCIPLINE PROBLEMS, AND DEPICT SUCH METHODS AS DISCUSSION, REVIEW, AND SUPERVISED STUDY. SUBJECTIVE EVALUATIONS OF THE TAPES BY INSTRUCTORS AND STUDENTS WERE ENCOURAGING. THE CHIEF RECOMMENDATION WAS FOR MORE CONTINUITY OF ACTION AS OPPOSED TO THE SHORT, ILLUSTRATIVE "CLIPS" ORIGINALLY DESIGNED TO KEEP PACE WITH A COURSE OUTLINE. GREATER CONTINUITY WOULD PERMIT OBSERVERS TO "TEACH ALONG" WITH THE TEACHER. SINCE THE TAPES CAN BE STOPPED AND REVERSED AT ANY POINT, STUDENTS CAN DISCUSS WHAT THE TEACHER HAD DONE OR MIGHT DO NEXT. THE ACTIVITIES OF 70 STUDENT TEACHERS WERE ALSO TAPED, AND STUDENT-TEACHERS "PROFITED GREATLY" FROM THE SELF-EVALUATION PERMITTED BY VIEWING THEIR OWN TAPES. (RP)
