Practical training is an integral part of training for any future profession. Improving and extending the practical training for future teachers, by strengthening the development of the required key competences oriented towards teachers´ critical and creative thinking, has been in the centre of attention in education in Slovakia. Future teachers enter the practice with many ideas on what is expected of good teaching to represent. However, their teaching style often lacks creativity, ability to assess or self-assess, as well as higher level of critical thinking when choosing appropriate methods and procedures. The objective of this article is to point out the application of observational video-studies, using the AAA method as a means of strengthening practical teacher preparation with emphasis on critical thinking development among educators in technical subjects. This paper is a followup to the previous study ´Implementation of Critical Thinking Strategies in School Subject Technology: A Preliminary Study´.


Keywords –video-study, AAA method, critical and creative thinking, technical education, teacher, pupil.
