I've just published a series of postings exploring the potential of online video for teaching and learning languages. These come from a session that I presented for Moroccan teachers of English in Kinitra in December 08.
I've split the materials from the session into four sections.
- Online Video: For Language Development
- Online Video: As Communication
- Online Video: As Knowledge Resource
- Online Video: Authentic Genres
are by no means conclusive. With the spread of broadband access the
potential for education and for language teaching and development and
autonomous teacher development is huge, but still as yet largely under
exploited as the discussion that followed my session highlighted.
I hope you enjoy thes postings and please do leave me a comment here if there are any particular favourite video sharing sites that I have missed.
I'd also be very interested to hear about your own experiences of using online video with your students. Are you able to? What are the problems that you face in exploiting this valuable materials.
