Four separate approaches to employing digital video editing were examined with preservice and in-service teachers in an attempt to find common themes. Though selected from a variety of teacher preparation content areas (special education, literacy, and science). each approach shared several common attributes. Among them were the purposeful disruption of traditional teaching, the promotion of rigorous participation in analysis of effective teaching strategies, and the building of learning communities through apprenticeship models. Implications for teaching, teacher preparation, and research are discussed.
