Breaking News: Utilizing Video Simulations to Improve Educational Leaders' Public Speaking Skills
Friend, Jennifer; Adams, April; Curry, George
Journal of Research on Leadership Education, v6 n5 p234-249 Dec 2011
This article examines specific uses of video simulations in one educational leadership preparation program to advance future school and district leaders' skills related to public speaking and participation in televised news interviews. One faculty member and two advanced educational leadership candidates share their perspectives of several applications of advanced technologies, including one-on-one video simulations with the instructor and collaborative peer review of video portfolios. Finally, the authors provide links to multimedia examples of these digital artifacts from an advanced educational leadership course, titled Effective Practices: Media, Government & Public Communications, offered at the University of Missouri-Kansas City.
