Enabling and Supporting Remote Classroom Teaching Observation: Live Video Conferencing Uses in Initial Teacher Education
Wang, Ruolan; Wiesemes, Rolf
Technology, Pedagogy and Education, v21 n3 p351-360 2012
In this paper the authors present findings from a small-scale study in order to extend their understanding of using live video conferencing in initial teacher education. Four distinct steps, consisting of observation, contextualisation, reflection and development of personal practices, were identified based on an in-depth focus group interview. The authors argue that current conceptualisations of video conferencing are limited in their scope in terms of focusing predominantly on pragmatic and instrumental teacher training issues. They suggest that video conferencing needs to be integrated further into training practices in order to be truly beneficial and to have long-term effects for all continuous professional development, based on the opportunities that live video conferencing offers above face-to-face observations and lesson recordings.
