Student teaching is a culminating experience that integrates many professional skills, including reflective practice. However, reflection is typically treated in text form and videography of teaching performance historically lacks intentional structures for meaningful analysis. As a device for reflection, digital video can be easily taught to teacher education students and integrated into digital portfolios. This model been implemented in a teacher education program in which students produce videos of teaching performance and then engage their cooperating teachers in a reflective dialog of the edited videos (a meta reflection). In this roundtable, we present resources and techniques for implementing video meta reflection (VMR) into field experiences. We will discuss basic techniques using a cinematic grammar that result in better video with more intentional points of view. Finally, we will show how to incorporate the videos into web-based digital portfolios.
