Use of Digital Videos in New Zealand Science Classrooms: Opportunities for Teachers and Students
Chen, Junjun; Cowie, Bronwen
Curriculum and Teaching, v31 n2 p71-86 Sep 2016
This paper reports how New Zealand teachers used digital videos from an educational website in science classrooms and how teachers and students viewed the use of videos. The study involved lesson observations in nine different classrooms, student and teacher interviews, and teacher focus group discussions. Multiple qualitative data were analysed using inductive content analysis. Findings indicate three major affordances for pedagogies to support student science learning: Support for discussion and developing concepts, informing hands-on activities, and an additional source of knowledge in the classroom. Implications for science teachers' use of digital videos have been proposed.
