Action Research: Video Analysis in High School

This past year has seen a lot of work done by me and my partners, Luke LaBaw and Bebe Ullrich, two amazing PE teachers at the American Embassy School in New Delhi, India.

We began wondering how effective video analysis would be on skill improvement.  Over several months, we designed and planned our research.  This past January, we implemented the design on six high school badminton classes.  We then analyzed the results.

We were astounded at how well video analysis worked at helping students learn and improve badminton skills.

Have a read of our research paper.

Please contact me if you are interested in repeating the experiment or using video analysis in your classroom.

Research Project Presentations: Fitness and Video Analysis Interventions

Here is a link to the Google Hangout recording of the presentations from two groups of graduate students at the American Embassy School.

The first presentation is from Nisha Sethi (@nishasethi2) and Madhu Kapoor.  They used an intervention to see if using additional, fun fitness activities had an effect on their students’ fitness levels over one unit of study.

The second presentation is from me and my research partners Bebe Ullrich (@bullrich) and L. LaBaw.  We used iPads with a video analysis application (UberSense) to see if video analysis had an effect on skill performance during a badminton unit.

Here are some links to another of my blogs regarding the design, implementation and results of the intervention study.
