La videoeducazione per la formazione degli insegnanti: sviluppi e prospettive nel Web 2.0

Silvia Micheletta


Teacher Training Course Enhanced by Video: Developments and Perspectives in the Web 2.0

In the broadest sense, video-based education has a long history that dates back to the last century. The spread of television and later of the multimedia have profoundly marked the increased use of video in education and teaching. In recent years, digitization and broadband technology as well as the increasingly widespread availability of mobile technology, which is economical and easy-to-use, have transformed the web into a huge sphere for video production and sharing. The phenomenon now takes on a new aspect for education and looks set to significantly change teacher training methods. In this paper we describe the new prospects of video-based education brought by recent web developments, with particular reference to Web 2.0 with YouTube and other video-sharing platforms. We will present two training methods enhanced by videos, video-modeling and video-coaching, and we will analyze their potential problems with reference to teacher training.
