CILT Workshop on Digital Video Inquiry in Learning and Education

Abstract : This report documents a workshop on the use of digital video in the study of learning and teaching, held at Stanford University's Wallenberg Hall on November 25 and 26, 2002. The workshop was funded by the National Science Foundation through a Center for Innovative Learning Technologies (CILT) seed grant. CILT was founded in October 1997 with the aid of a 5-year grant from the NSF, with the goal of stimulating research and development in technologies to support learning in science, mathematics, engineering, and technology in grades K-14. In addition to the workshop itself, the seed grant from CILT funded the development of a community website that serves as a repository of resources and a discussion forum for a broad range of issues around the use of digital video in inquiry. The premise of the project is that digital video is an increasingly important medium for recording and analyzing interactions in classroom and other educational contexts, but that there is relatively little community support for researchers and practitioners who make use of digital video for this purpose. At the root of this problem, ironically, is the widespread availability of inexpensive video recording and editing technologies. The barriers to entry for digital video are now lower than ever, but guidance about how to proceed once in is sparse and scattered. As a result, we are seeing a great deal of effort being expended to produce a growing number of independent toolsets and approaches. The purpose of the workshop was to gather a number of the most active practitioners in this area to uncover the common fruits of these diverse experiences, and to identify areas in which collaboration and consolidation are possible.
