About the webinars
Chris Roland: Teacher-produced audio and video: Record it, use it, enjoy your life!
In this session we stay at the basic end of tech use, looking at how desktop voice recorders and cameras that come already installed on your devices, PC’s and laptops, can save you time, improve your teaching and create a sense of variety in your lessons.
We cover key areas such as providing students with feedback and correction, helping them learn vocabulary, giving instructions, consolidation of classroom tasks and providing listening practice.
The session is orientated towards the teaching of teens but I have also used most of these ideas with younger learners and adults and point out where they can be adapted for those age ranges as well. There is example footage and anecdotes from my own lessons. Suitable for new teachers, seasoned veteran and trainers alike.
