Today is described by some as the 'video age', with many possibilities for integrating video into language learning, facilitating communicative learning skills, listening, speaking, reading and writing.
Video offers opportunities for developing listening and speaking, which can be the most difficult skills for language learners. Video also allows the student to learn languages at their own pace and when they have the time.
The Video for ALL project is building a comprehensive repository of how video can be used for language teaching and learning. ‘How to’ videos will be produced that show how teachers and students can use and make their own videos. Many of the practices will be piloted with teachers from multiple levels of language education (primary and secondary schools, adult and university) to ensure quality.
The project will build accessibility and use to allow educators to understand which practices can be used by:
- Age of students (primary, secondary, university, adult learners)
- CEFR levels (A1-C2)
- Type of usage (inside/outside the classroom, Internet, hand-held cameras, screen capture tools, etc.)
Video for ALL will create an In-service teacher training course for teachers to learn how to use video as a basic tool for language teaching as well as understanding the pedagogic value and uses.
