Digital Practices and Literacy Identities: Preservice Teachers Negotiating Contradictory Discourses of Innovation
The purpose of the study was to examine how preservice English teachers in a teacher-education program were thinking about technology in relation to their teaching practices. Specifically, the author asked what goals they had for using those technologies and what meanings those technologies acquired in their classrooms and in their professional development. The findings reveal that two contrasting approaches to the role of technology in the teaching of literacy were identified: one is tool-for-result, and the other is tool-and-result. Although the results show that most of the students had views that placed them within tool-for-result approach, the author suggests that English teachers who adopt a tool-and-result perspective can involve their students in critical participation in relevant discourses.

This article examines teacher leadership. The authors were interested in developing stronger teachers, accomplished teacher leaders, and a transformed teaching profession. The findings reveal that utilizing teacher leaders in teacher education courses, via video conference, creates opportunities for mutual responsibility of P–12 schools and higher education in the preparation of new teachers. The authors hope to further understand the power of these real- time interactions between future teachers and teacher leaders.

Feedback Consistencies and Inconsistencies: Eight Mentors’ Observations on One Preservice Teacher’s Lesson
The purpose of this case study was to examine the providing oral feedback in a simulated mentor–mentee discussion. Findings showed that mentors’ feedback was variable in both their positive feedback and constructive criticisms and, in one case, the feedback was contrasting in nature.

Using a Standardized Video-Based Assessment in a University Teacher Education program to Examine Preservice Teachers Knowledge related to Effective Teaching
The purpose of this study was to analyze the implementation of the Video Assessment of Interactions in Learning (VAIL) as a standardized measure of preservice teacher learning. Based on the Classroom Assessment Scoring System, the VAIL measures participants’ ability to identify effective teaching strategies and interactions related to emotional supports, classroom organization, and instructional supports. The data suggest that the VAIL may be a useful tool in examining preservice teacher learning. However, large variability in preservice teachers’ ability to identify effective teaching strategies and behaviors remains unexplained by this model.

Teacher Educators as Learners: How Supervisors Shape Their Pedagogies by Creating and Using Classroom Videos with Their Student Teachers
This study explored how supervisors can develop greater stances of inquiry toward their practices as they experimented with video of their student teachers and shared their experiences with peers. The findings revealed how these experiences not only enhanced their existing personal approaches toward supervision, but also challenged their roles as observers and prompted them to build messages about teaching dispositions directly from video. The supervisors’ willingness to share and listen to others’ experiences with video was critical to their growth. Supervisors across grade levels, subject areas, and field sites either recognized or began to recognize how creating and using video could help them share at least a bit more of the learning space with their student teachers.

Drawn from a larger study, the authors examine how one preservice teacher negotiated positions of power with students in ways that enabled and prohibited him from enacting his preferred teacher identities. Specifically, this study illustrates how video analysis opened opportunities for this preservice teacher to reflect on the relationship between positions of power and identity enactment during moment-to-moment classroom interactions. The analysis challenged the preservice teacher to study how he positioned himself as a teacher, how students positioned him, and how he positioned students during classroom interactions.

Preservice Teachers’ Perceptions of Learning Science Methods through Hybridizing Asynchronous and Traditional Experiences
This study addresses the research question about preservice teachers’ perceptions toward online learning after completing an elementary science methods course. Specifically, their perceptions about utilizing an online science methods curriculum versus a traditional methods curriculum. Survey and focus group data indicate that the preservice teachers valued and wanted more online experiences, but not as a total replacement of traditional methods experiences. Furthermore, using the video cases made improved comprehension possible because all preservice teachers could watch the same learning experience. The author concludes that online video cases will likely continue to provide instructors with the ability tangentially to capture elementary classroom learning environments and elementary student learning while working with preservice teachers.

In this article, the author argues that there is a lack of research into the role of the facilitator of discussions of video for professional development. A key purpose of this article is to expose aspects of the role of the facilitator of teacher learning, not reported in previous research in the use of video. Hence, the author documents research he undertook into the use of video as a tool for teacher learning. In analysing empirical data from one school, he suggests five key aspects or decision points in working with teachers on video: selecting a video clip, setting up the discussion norms, re-watching the video, moving to interpretation, and metacommenting. The author argues that having presented key aspects of the role of the facilitator of video use, a further look at the detail of the data from discussions serves to highlight some of the complexities involved in just one of the categories.

This qualitative study investigates the efficacy of Ideas Videos (or iVideos) in pre-service teacher education. This study explores the experiences of student teachers and their lecturer engaging with this succinct, advocacy-style video genre designed to evoke emotions about powerful ideas in Education. The findings indicate this generative task, involving student teachers as filmmakers, leveraged rich outcomes in relation to their professional knowledge development.

This study explores how interns’ video-based reflections provide evidence that the use of video records of teaching interns’ promotes the development of critical reflection around instruction and learning. Key findings suggest that the existing literature on reflection suggests that beginning teachers rarely, if ever, reflect on issues related to instruction and learning, reflection on instruction and learning can emerge early in a novices’ development when video is used as a mediating tool.
