Digital Video Cameras for Brainstorming and Outlining: The Process and Potential
Unger, John A.; Scullion, Vicki A.
Journal of Language and Literacy Education, v9 n2 p131-139 Fall 2013
This "Voices from the Field" paper presents methods and participant-exemplar data for integrating digital video cameras into the writing process across postsecondary literacy contexts. The methods and participant data are part of an ongoing action-based research project systematically designed to bring research and theory into practice for adult, non-native speakers of English in pre-college writing courses. However, as can be seen in the participant video data, transcripts, and essay-writing data, the methods and theories can be applied beyond the current research and teaching context. Relatively recent concepts in learning, development, and semiotics, specifically our species-unique ability to read the intentions of others, which forms the basis for imitation, guide this approach. We intentionally provide online links to participant video and raw text data to take advantage of 21st Century digital data-sharing options, in order to facilitate transparency and public ownership of data, findings, and directions for further research.
