Using Digital Videos in the Classroom

Knowledge Exchange Lab

ScienceCampus Tuebingen, Cluster: Digital Videos in Teacher Training


January 2010 - December 2012


ScienceCampus Tuebingen


This project provides empirical evidence for the impact of teachers' knowledge and beliefs on the use of digital videos (and video tools) in class, which is still an underinvestigated topic in terms of systematic research. Regarding the development of potential approaches to advance technical and related pedacogical skills in teacher training, the following issues are addressed in two studies:

  1. How do teachers already use digital videos and video tools in class, and which applications do they see?
  2. How do (prospective) teachers' technical and related pedagogical knowledge about and their personal experiences with online video tools affect their planning of classroom situations?
