Using Computer-Based Video Analysis for Virtual Field Work in a Fully Online Teacher Education Program
Concurrent Session 7
Integration of computer-based video analysis as virtual field hours with the intent of promoting instructional decision-making deeply rooted in assessment data for a full online early childhood education program.
This presentation will discuss a computer-based, targeted video analysis for the intent of facilitating instructional decision-making deeply rooted in assessment data. Research and educational stakeholders assert that instructional decision-making fails to be data-based - and teachers are not intentionally focusing their lessons based on student individual needs. In our fully online early childhood education program, one of our primary goals is to provide opportunities for teachers to apply their content knowledge in real-world educational settings; the current computer-based video analysis fosters this application through pragmatic online experiences. The video analysis approach will be discussed, in addition to the pedagogical benefits as measured through student data.
