Educational research

Education is all about gaining knowledge about facts, events, values, beliefs, general concepts, principles, etc. Educating people is essentially a social interaction process and relies heavily on communication skills and group dynamics.

On the other hand, training is a way to develop skills, rather than just know about something. Training is based on practical application, it involves hands-on experience and helps people to implement a new system, improve a specific ability, or further their abilities.

Video feedback tool Viso

More and more video feedback is used in education and training facilities. It continues to prove its effectiveness for both educators and students. By using video and audio recordings in education and training, students and educators can receive, and benefit from, direct feedback.

With Viso®, you can view recordings live or directly afterwards in any preferred location. Because there is no delay in the debriefing, the educator's attention can be completely focused on the learner's behavior.

Classroom observations

To examine, for example, effective teaching and teacher-student interaction, classroom observations can be used as a technique to gain the desired insights. Using a software tool to observe the questions students ask, how the teacher reacts, and whether the teacher checks if the students understand his explanation, will make the research much easier. It enables to code behaviors accurately, record one or multiple videos, integrate data modalities, and explore the results.

Educational research topics

Educational research is a systematic and scientific inquiry into various aspects of education. It involves studying teaching methods, learning processes, educational policies, and the overall effectiveness of educational interventions. Educational research is typically video based and carried out in real life situations. Examples of research topics are:

  • Teacher-student interaction
  • Evaluation of teaching methods
  • Classroom dynamics
  • Effectiveness of special education programs
  • Engagement of students

Training teachers to teach

At Virginia Tech, Dr. Tiffany Drape has been working with college students, who are pre-service teachers, and will be going out to teach. 

In this video Tiffany Drape tells us more about recording students as the faculty taught some lessons, recording how they’re responding, and then going through reflection exercises, to see if they can verbalize that.
