e.g. if we video taped a sprinters running action and watched it back with his coach highlighting technical issues.

This is critical, especially the part about providing cues for the athlete. Kernoodle and Carlton (1992) had participants either watch a video or watch a video with cues on specific aspects to look for, and found that the video with cues was far greater for learning. This is because a straight up video appears to have too great an information load to process

I agree that feedback + video is far more effective than video alone. This method of technical analysis can be a very useful tool. However would you agree that it should not be used too frequently so that the athlete becomes engaged in more active problem solving themselves and as to not develop a dependence on such tools?

The question that arises in my head here, is does the student have the tools necessary to be able to solve the problems themselves?
