James Damico visited the Friday Institute and the New Literacies Collaborative today and presented his work with the Critical Web Reader -http://cwr.indiana.edu/ (CRW).

Video-based data analysis, which is currently undergoing a period of rapid development, has the potential to offer new ways of researching classrooms because it encourages collaboration between researchers and classroom teachers. Computer assisted video data analysis software can further the use of video as a research tool; it has the potential to encourage attention to and analysis of both verbal and non-verbal behaviors of research participants (Coiro, 2009) and encourage collaborative participation between teachers and researchers…Continue
