An Exploratory Study of Digital Video Editing as a Tool for Teacher Preparation
Calandra, Brendan; Gurvitch, Rachel; Lund, Jacalyn
Journal of Technology and Teacher Education, v16 n2 p137-153 Mar 2008
The authors' purpose was to examine teacher candidates' perspectives of successful teaching through personalized video vignettes. Furthermore, the authors were interested in how participants' written reflections might change as a result of creating these vignettes. This research used mixed-methods within the context of an exploratory multi-case study. Results showed that participants generally focused the video vignettes on themselves (rather than their students) and on what Van Manen (1977) called more "technical" aspects of their teaching. Some changes in levels of written reflections were observed that may have been caused in part by the video editing process. (Contains 5 tables.)
