Video book trailer examples | Hot topics for school | Scoop.it

In a small group, (3 is best!) choose a favourite book that you’ve already read. Brainstorm together how you could get readers interested in the book without giving it all away. Don’t try and summarize the story, just a few visual & fun ideas that will be intriguing or eye catching. Think of a movie trailer or a book blurb and how they can draw you into the story without giving away any spoilers! Make sure at some point you show the cover of the book and say the title –even if it’s for only 1-2 seconds.

Deze app biedt ideale mogelijkheden om iets te delen door middel van video in een onderwijssetting (zoals bijvoorbeeld een praktijkmoment in de BPV) en daar vervolgens persoonlijk als stagiair(e) op te reageren of reflecteren door middel van een overlay.

Gabi Witthaus's curator insight, September 3, 2013 1:47 AM

Interesting idea - this could be useful in EFL teaching or just for people who are reading in English as a second language and need a bit of help.

 

I tried it on the Adobe Connect website to see if it would demystify some of the 'Marketese' though, and it didn't help much! A sentence such as 'Powering mission-critical web conferencing solutions, end-to-end, on virtually any device' is full of everyday words which are being used in an unnecessarily obscure way. Which is why I'm in favour of simply writing in plain English (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plain_english).

 

On that subject, I recently discovered the absolutely wonderful Simple English Wikipedia (http://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page), which does just that.

This website is made for children that have a hard time understanding a word or sentence in the English language. By breaking down a word or difficult sentence into word that the child will be able to know.
