What did you accomplish over the summer?
I found the summer meetings to be highly productive in planning and adapting this project to best fit the needs of my students. I collaborated with various members of the FITT staff, as well as The Frankfort Digital Video Project staff to create guided online and in-person session for students to utilize video as part of their training.
This project will provide students with more ‘hands-on’ experience in preparing, developing and administering language assessments.
How did your thinking about your project evolve?
This project has evolved greatly from its original plan of creating online learning modules which included online video examples of language assessments. At our Initial FITT meeting through conversations with past and present FITT awardees I began to plan to create new videos of students administering language assessments to add to the Hunter Video Analysis library. The power of using video has been demonstrated in training teachers and is an on-going goal of the School of Education. I believe my FITT project has been improved by engaging students in the process of creating and analyzing videos of their own practice.
