Developing Communication Competence Using An Online Video Reflection System: Pre-service Teachers’ Experiences
This study examines how interactive video and web-based technologies can be used to improve pre-service teachers’ communication competence and reflective thinking. The study also explores the learning processes and systematically evaluates the Video Reflection system from the students’ perspective. The authors conclude that the stages between presentations developed pre-service teachers’ cognitive communication competence. Development of cognitive communication abilities coupled with iterative cycles of practice developed pre-service teachers’ behavioral capabilities.

Effects of Inservice Teacher Training on Correct Implementation of Assessment and Instructional Procedures for Teachers of Students With Profound Multiple Disabilities
A multicomponent training package (live training, video modeling, role playing, and feedback) was used to train teachers to conduct assessment and to instruct students with profound multiple disabilities. The first part of the study involved training seven teachers to conduct assessment in three areas: (a) preference assessment, (b) controlled body movement assessment, and (c) access skill assessment. Four teacher-student pairs from the first part of the study participated in the second part, where teachers were trained to use one of instructional strategies.

This study examined a range of specific features that presumably influence the effectiveness of computer-assisted statistics instruction, such as the level of learner engagement, learner control, and the nature of feedback. The authors’ analyses revealed three statistically significant findings: larger effects were reported in studies in which treatment groups received more instructional time than control groups, in studies that recruited graduate students as participants, and in studies employing an embedded assessment.
