This blog entry gives five reasons for using authentic video in the classroom as part of teaching English. With the proliferation of video websites teachers are turning their eyes on this resource to bring some life and energy into the classroom.
I am conducting a feasibility study at London Business School on developing a new system for teaching vocabulary that uses short comedic video clips to illustrate the meanings of words. I am looking to speak with English teachers about how they currently teach vocabulary for KS3 and whether they think this approach could work. I would be most appreciative of any feedback and/or the opportunity to discuss this further.
