Using Streaming Technology To Build Video-Cases That Enhance Student Teaching on IT.
So, Simon Wing-wah; Pun, Sai-wing
This paper describes a prototype of a development project for practicum classes in the Hong Kong Institute of Education. An in-house development of a streaming video system is used for improving student teaching by building a digitized video database from a variety of sources. The main objective is to develop an interactive web-based video platform for critical analysis of significant classroom activities and events related to information technology (IT) teaching skills and strategies. In designing the video system, Synchronized Multimedia Integration Language (SMIL) is used. Video clips can be synchronized and displayed in parallel with text clips showing the teaching sequences and key ideas. Viewing and critiquing the videos side by side in an online setting is the key learning strategy that provides opportunities to develop student teachers' reflective thinking skills and interactive reflections with their classmates through online forum discussions. Includes four figures. (Author)
