Videorecording as Theory.
This chapter discusses difficulties encountered in research on teaching and learning mathematics to illustrate a set of core problems with appropriate uses of video as data. Problems include: (1) processes of collecting video data and making selections from it are usually deleted from research accounts; (2) production values that are preserved in technical arrangements for collecting video become a permanent part of the data one is recording; and (3) video databases may be public resources by virtue of accepted arrangements for scholarly review and research sponsorship yet it cannot be fully anticipated the public use of database materials. Several local suggestions for overcoming some of these problems are presented. (KHR)
