    Video Records as Data for Discovery

Video is an important source of data in studies of human activity.


• What does the novice teacher notice?
• What does the expert teacher notice?
• What do different researchers or disciplines notice?

Many insights in the learning sciences and distributed cognition have been built from careful multi-disciplinary analyses of video-recordings of human activities in their social and material contexts – including instructional interactions.

There is a fundamental need for learning sciences—like genomics and other science disciplines—to build a cumulative knowledge base from primary data records for use by many research groups. Growth of video case study use.

We also have a central need for the socio-technical infrastructure to enable digital video collaboratories in the learning sciences.
