A series of assignments integrating readings with video footage prepares students to discuss and debate interpretations of learning behavior.
For this project, students first videotape themselves teaching and interviewing a child to assess the child's mathematical skills development.
Then, in Mediathread, students write an analysis of their interaction with the child, using video to provide supporting evidence of class concepts.
Professor Pappas Schattman then assesses her students' mastery of theory, teaching and interviewing skills, and interpretation of the video.
Professor Pappas Schattman uses Mediathread throughout her course on early childhood mathematics education. Read more
