Leveraging on Video Technology for High-Leverage Practices


In redesigning a methods course for Singapore Secondary Mathematics prospective teachers, we leverage on video technology to help them learn about the instructional practice of going through textbook-type questions. We find that this innovation generates learning all round – both for the student teachers as well as teacher educators.
