Abstract

The use of video is prevalent in teacher education. it has been shown to be successful in varied content areas, with multiple contexts, and for differing audiences. Even with its successes, there are several known challenges with capturing and using classroom video to inform teacher professional development and preservice teacher education. To address these issues, drawing on a grant from the National Science Foundation, we have created an extended reality initiative (XRI) that provides information about equipment, software tools to edit single and multi-perspective videos, and a collection of videos for instant use in preservice and in-service classrooms. In addition to the deliverable outcomes, the project has shown that 360 and VR can improve preservice teacher noticing through increased perceptual capacity.
