The current study utilizes students' journaling and video-recording of field experience teaching sessions as vehicles for inquiry into the development of the process of productive reflection within the piloting phase of an experimental course. The course is designed to improve teachers' interactions with children as well as their implementation of curricula to promote gains in children's social and academic development. The piloting of the course took place in university in the Midwest United States.

Video has long been used to capture microteaching episodes, illustrate classroom cases and practices, and to review teaching practices. Video annotation tools offer the potential to support both the reflection and analysis of one's own teaching with minimal video editing as well as the ability to associate captured video with related student and teaching evidence. In this article, the authors compare and contrast emerging video annotation tools and describe their applications to support and potentially transform teacher reflection.
