Study demonstrates smart phone captured visual data and media literacy as emergent action research tools for special educators
"Action research is the process of researching one's own actions to improve practice to benefit clients or students. I have found that in the special education setup, the action can be captured using smart phone camera to work as a visual data for self-reflection or consultations to improve classroom practice for learning outcomes," says Dr Lalit Kishore whose paper has been accepted for a conference on media literacy to be held at SGT University in Gurugram.

The research paper titled, "Using Short Smart Phone Video Recordings as Visual Research Tool For Children with Special Needs for Dysfunction Analysis:  An Experiment with Media Literacy Element for Special Educators" has emphasized that that in the present times dominated by digital technology and tools.

"With emphasis on rights of children with disabilities and inclusive education, children with specific learning needs require individualised education plans for which the take off decision point for early intervention is most important," he elaborates while stressing the need for special educators acquiring visual action research skills and media literacy skills.

He holds that with reasonably good camera phones being vastly available, if special educators as action researchers can make use of visual data for informed diagnosis with the degree of disability of children with special needs for early intervention.  "To record a smart phone camera along with basic video-editing software of 'movie maker' was used in partnership with the in-house research unit  of Disha in Jaipur. For prognosis and further action, focus group consultative technique was used," it is informed.
