Full recordShow full item record
AbstractThis paper discusses recent findings from the study of a Web-based application called Video Interactions for Teaching and Learning (VITAL). VITAL was developed by the Columbia Center for New Media Teaching and Learning (CCNMTL) in partnership with Prof. Herbert P. Ginsburg of Teachers College, Columbia University, for his graduate course on the development of mathematical thinking in young children. The VITAL pedagogy is based on research in three areas: the psychology of mathematical thinking in young children, successful practices for adult learning, and the principles of instructional design and interactive media. This paper reports on the learning benefits of tools for analyzing and communicating about video content.
