CAPTURE: ANALYSE: REFLECT: ENACT

Using self-tracking video technology for Professional Growth and Accountability

Professional accountability and the provision of evidence of performance, aligned to industry standards are challenges faced by all professionals. This research investigates how a group of teachers have used technology in an innovative way for professional learning.

The goals of the TIPS-2 Professional Growth Project (TIPS-2) were to investigate cost effective and constructive ways to use video and a range of innovative technologies to monitor teachers` performance aligned to standards while supporting self-reflection and collegial learning.

Research was undertaken with a group of K-10 teachers as they used self-tracking video technologies, mobile phones, touch tablet devices and 3G cameras to document and reflect on their classroom practice. A community of practice model was used for teacher professional learning. Specialised software addressed the challenges of how to process and make meaning of complex, multi-layered, dynamic actions and reactions in time and space captured in classroom videos.

The findings include practical examples of cost effective tools and sustainable practices to monitor professional practice, promote personal growth and align performance to professional standards and indicators. Reflective protocols around the use of classroom video for sharing classroom practices in a community of practice model were developed.

A range of exciting opportunities to link this work to further studies and school based action research for teachers will be discussed.
