Using picturebook video read-alouds in primary ELT
About the webinar
Online video read-alouds by picturebook creators are an underutilised resource in primary ELT. This webinar will present a set of criteria for the selection of quality asynchronous picturebook video read-alouds which includes an analysis of the different video production approaches used and their affordances for PELT purposes. We will also present a framework that can be used for designing materials around picturebooks for e-learning.
