Using Digital Videos to Enhance Teacher Preparation
Dymond, Stacy K.; Bentz, Johnell L.
Teacher Education and Special Education, v29 n2 p98-112 Spr 2006
The technology to produce high quality, digital videos is widely available, yet its use in teacher preparation remains largely overlooked. A digital video library was created to augment instruction in a special education methods course for preservice elementary education teachers. The videos illustrated effective strategies for working with students with disabilities in general education settings. All videos were filmed in the local public schools. The processes involved with identifying who, what, and where to videotape, obtaining parental permission, collecting digital video, and creating digital movies are described in this article. Considerations for teacher educators seeking to construct and use digital videos as a form of pedagogy are examined, and directions for future research are discussed. (Contains 5 tables.)
