Effective use of video in the ELT classroom

This webinar explores video, and the many errors and examples of poor practice which should be avoided.

About the webinar

Digital media has seen the availability of online-video reach saturation point, and so too the instances of use it in the classroom. This has led likewise to a saturation of different approaches and methodologies, some better than others. Here we look at what is effective and why, with practical examples for both skills and language work, enabling teachers to confidently create their own media-based lesson plans, as well as evaluate what constitutes the most appropriate video content. Using the examples in The British Council’s ‘The English Channel’ we explore the different ways video can best be used as a teaching resource.
