1.d. Movement Analysis and video feedback

 

A teacher can use Acclaim and Arc Media Library video analysis software to upload video to a secure server that includes highlighted areas of the video for illumination as well as time-coded annotated comments. The software program allows groups to watch one another’s works and collaboratively give feedback. Feedback comments can be restricted between student and teacher or between peers or open to the whole class serving to create a constructive exchange of ideas.  The analysis and feedback process heightens student’s self-awareness and quickly and efficiently helps teachers zero in on what is happening at a specific point in time. (Parrish, 2016). Illuminating best practice in dance, these applications support strategies for the analysis of creative work, collaborative evaluation, high quality feedback and assessment. In my pedagogy and movement classes students think through complex problems, identify specific goals, and design evaluation strategies to work for them (Parrish, 2017).

 

I have given three keynotes presentations on technology use in the dance classroom, 25 national conference presentations, 15 international conference presentations, and published 13 articles all addressing the use of technology in the classroom. In the coming years, I will continue to develop and disseminate strategies and models for the integration of flipped assessment and interactive video analysis which can be applied to all aspects of dance not just the training of teachers.  It is my hope that these tools promote creative problem solving, deepen recall, increase student self-responsibility, and make assessment fun.
