Video-Taping for Student Teachers?
Harris, William; And Others
This study investigates the effect of videotaping on the ability of student teachers to involve their pupils in lessons. Forty-nine students were randomly divided into three subgroups over a period of two quarters. The first subgroup was exposed to concentrated videotaping for two 30-minute sessions per week for 10 weeks. The second subgroup was exposed to videotaping for two 30-minute sessions per week for five weeks. The third subgroup was not exposed to videotaping. Two campus supervisors simultaneously observed and evaluated each of the 49 students three times. These evaluations were subjected to statistical analysis leading to the following conclusions: (a) there was no significant difference between pupil involvement levels for any of the subgroups; (b) pupil involvement levels did not differ significantly during any of the six observational periods; (c) the total group exposed to videotaping for 10 weeks did not differ significantly between and among the observational periods, but individuals did differ significantly as the quarter progressed; (d) the total group exposed to videotaping for five weeks did not differ significantly between and among the three observational periods, but the individuals did differ significantly as the quarter progressed; and (e) the total group exposed to no videotaping did not differ significantly between and among the three observational periods, nor did the individuals differ significantly as the quarter progressed.
