Frequently Asked Questions About the Video Study

How can the videos be accessed?

The videotaped lessons upon which analyses were conducted and reported were collected with the understanding that they would never be shown publicly. This is due largely to privacy and confidentiality concerns. However, the study sponsors and researchers recognized the value in making lessons from each country available to public to provide examples of the many types of activities and behaviors observed in the main database. To address this anticipated need, additional lessons were collected in each country that were specifically intended for public viewing. Included with the full report is a CD-ROM that contains video clip examples taken from the public-use videos from each country. Some of the video clips are also available for viewing in the highlights of the report. In addition, the full-length versions of the public-use lesson are available for purchase at cost, from two sources: LessonLab and Research for Better Schools.
