Workshop on Video Analysis (with pupils with multiple disabilities and visual impairment)


This workshop looked at video analysis as a means of observation and assessment when working with pupils with multiple disabilities and visual impairment. It took the form of an interactive workshop. Participants brought videos of their own work, in the areas of communication or play, with multi disabled students. The group analysed the videos and make comments and suggestions within a framework of positive and supportive discussion. Participants learned about video as an assessment tool as well as gaining valuable insights into their own work.
