  8. 8. Creating Video Feedback 1. Fill in checklist of required steps for assignment (there has to be a visual to comment on) 2. Use Jing (it’s free) 3. Send student the link or Save file and send student the file
  9. 9. Video Feedback Study 37 pre-service teachers (K-6) 2 assignments on lesson planning One given written feedback One give video feedback Average grade on both assignment equal Survey students (quantitative & qualitative) 5 point Likert scale on 8items Interviewed instructor

  11. 11. Results- Advantages Written Permanent “Written feedback seems to have this timeless quality because the response is written in stone.” Shorter “Video feedback may be too long compared to the written.” Accessible “Written feedback is much more easily accessible. Therefore reading it multiple times is not as onerous as listening/watching would be.”
  12. 12. Results- Advantages Video Personal “It feels more personal – I really enjoyed it” Tone “There were subtleties in tone and expression that would not have been otherwise understood” Quantity “I just felt that I was provided with a lot more feedback than would be provided with written feedback” Quality “Video feedback does provide enhanced feedback on assignments and allows the student to visually see where they lost marks on assignments.”
  13. 13. Results- Teacher on Written Diplomacy Have to be careful in comments with adults Generic Can do copy and paste with written (not video) Feedback more generic Problems Ask students to come see me when there are problems (they don’t always come)
  14. 14. Results- Teacher on Video Quality of Feedback Gave much more feedback Felt much more personal with student – would not have written this down Felt more confident in giving accurate feedback, especially when the student had not done as well It was like a short “tutoring” period – could give mini-lessons Technical Concerned about quality of video at first If had to redo, forgot what was said originally –started to use pause Nervous about software – whether record was on at times Distractions could be more of a problem Would get tired and start slurring words Has to be concerned with tone if tired Still time consuming, tiring, but my hands did not hurt File sizes were a problem at times
  15. 15. Conclusions Students More personal More detail Helped them learn more Teacher More personal More detail More precise Technical challenges
