This chapter focuses on the different uses of video technology for instruction and assessment. The use of video technology allows performance-based skills, knowledge and disposition for learning to be demonstrated and recorded for a number of uses. The uses of video technology provide ways for students with different backgrounds and experiences as well as language differences to effectively engage with their performance and develop their skills, knowledge and dispositions. Through engagement in performance recorded via video technology, students become more motivated to prepare effectively. Action-oriented videotaping allows those students with less language skills to make use of alternative ways to demonstrate their skill, knowledge and disposition to learn in an effective and supportive environment. Each of the uses for video technology utilizes different strategies and techniques. Successful examples of each use of video technology are provided within this chapter for using video effectively in undergraduate as well as K-12 settings.
