Classroom Videos in Professional Development
Chavez, Alma Fabiola Rangel
School Science and Mathematics, v107 n7 p269 Nov 2007
Due to the recent advances in video technology, an increased incorporation of videos and multimedia materials is used in teacher education, commonly for demonstration of good practices or as a reflection tool for teacher professional development. However, video cases can never fully replicate the complexity of working in a real classroom. Watching someone else does not necessarily ensure that student-teachers will reflect on their own beliefs and practices. Video cases constitute a powerful means to present student-teachers with alternative perspectives and practices, to stimulate them to look at events from the students' perspectives as well as the teachers'. This article cites several studies made to explore teacher development using classroom videos.
