Frankfort Education Library
Adaptive technology and video analysis are transforming the way teachers learn to teach. The Education Library at Hunter College provides an environment for education students to utilize these technologies to improve their teaching skills and techniques. In addition to traditional textbooks, lesson plans and manipulatives, the library has three smart classroom-labs outfitted with student and teacher video recording equipment. There are a variety of group study spaces outfitted with video smartboards to facilitate access to the Video Project.
Every candidate for a degree or certificate at the Hunter College School of Education is required to go through a process of video analysis of their teaching. As part of the student teaching or practicum course, students record video of their teaching -- a full lesson -- and upload it to a video server; available for review and practice with supervising faculty.
