looking for audio or video of preschool classrooms

  • 1.  looking for audio or video of preschool classrooms

    Posted 03-30-2020 10:46 AM
    Hi Everyone, I was hoping that someone might have suggestions of where I could find videos or even audio recordings of teacher-child interactions in preschool classrooms that I would be able to use as part of my doctoral work.  Ideally, I would love to be able to follow several teachers throughout their day but even if there are shorter videos or only audio transcripts of teachers and children talking together that would be absolutely fine.  If anyone has suggestions of places I could look or people to talk to that would be fantastic!  Thanks in advance for your assistance.  I hope everyone is staying safe!

    Hi,
    I don't know of any long videos but there are several short clips. Eastern CT State Univ"s Center for EC Excellence has many clips. In Colorado they have a project and you can find them at Results Matter. Google both of them. On YouTube look for Focused Observations and you will find the ones connected to Gayle Gronlund's Book by the same name. Hope this helps.

    This is a link to 3 videos we made in NJ, they include varied preschool classrooms and teachers. Each video is about 18 minutes.

    Hello,
    Check out Videatives, a collection of video mostly from Boulder Journey School, as well as other early childhood childhood centers and schools.

    Thank you so much, I have looked at some of the Videatives.  I am hoping to find longer videos where there is more teacher-child interaction, but these are a great suggestion and I appreciate it!

    Hi Shelly,
    I can't seem to find the streaming video. Can you give me steps on how to find it?  I am an adjunct for Northampton Community College and looking for some videos to teach "Time Sample" observation.
    Thanks!

    Hello Kathryn,

    Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner but the person in charge of our Facebook page was on vacation.  I do not believe The daily preschool you read about in the previous email is any longer available. They were live streaming during the shutdown for several months.  When things reopened they went back to their pay per view model.  So I don't believe you can access specific ones, there might be some videos on Facebook since that is the page they were LIVE on. It is called Pay to Learn Preschool (Facebook Page name) the website is https://playtolearnpreschool.us/

    Hope that is helpful!

    Best,

    Shelly

    Go to the website, Thinking & Creating with a Line - www.thinkingwithaline.com . If you look at the bar at the top you will see a "Resources" button. If you click the button, you will find all the videos that are in the many lessons in the program. Many will take you inside preschool classrooms where you can see teachers and children in action. Here is the specific link: https://vimeo.com/user45942720
