I am not too sure what you mean.
But I use very old-fashioned methods of getting my students to observe
lessons and home in on samples of dialogue in the classroom. This is
then analysed for interactive learning, teaching, etc.
It is great, and as there is just so much that can be done with these
samples. We have had fun with class analysis when students present
their observations. This discussion in itself can be analysed!
