June 30, 2009. Video Interactions for Teaching and Learning (VITAL), the web-based video analysis and communication system created by CCNMTL and Professor Herb Ginsburg of Teachers College, was featured in an article published in the latest edition of the Journal of Teacher Education. In "Video Annotation Tools: Technologies to Scaffold, Structure, and Transform Teacher Reflection," authors Peter Rich of Brigham Young University and Michael Hannafin of University of Georgia provide a comparative analysis of four emerging video annotation tools, including VITAL, and discuss each tools' ability to support and impact teacher reflection. The authors conclude, "Video annotation tools offer teachers the ability to see, as well as to analyze and refine, practice prior to, during, and following formative field experience."
