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.
