This article seeks to address some of the problems Teacher Educators have in helping develop Initial Teacher Training (ITT) candidates’ reflective practice. In tandem with investigating ways to develop reflection, the article considers how Information Learning Technology (ILT), and video in particular, can be used in ITT to help develop candidates’ ILT abilities as well as helping to provide a practical focus for developmental reflection. We investigate how Flip cameras can be integrated into candidates’ Learning Development Journals (LDJs) in the first year of a part-time, two-year Certificate in Education (Cert Ed), Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE), or Diploma in Teaching in the Lifelong Learning Sector (DTLLS) course as a basis for reflective development and to assist peer support and collaboration. With a focus on developing critical reflection, we go on to evaluate the effect of Flip cameras, as integrated into our Year 1 programme.
