The video software is free and comes with all iPads. The portability of the iPad allows student teachers the ability to reflect on their practice in the classroom or at home with ease. Advantages and disadvantages of iPad video use are described, and the reflective questions and prompts given to the student teacher as a part of the video observation process are shared.
