Oscar Week Special: Seven Teaching Resources on Film Literacy

Oscar Week Special: Seven Teaching Resources on Film Literacy | Successful EFL Teaching | Scoop.it

The Academy Awards are just around the corner, and there are a number ofnominated films that can be great teaching tools for educators this year. It looks like it might be a big year for Steven Spielberg in the classroom and on Award night -- his Lincoln has been nominated for 12 Oscars, including Best Picture.

With the abundance of media messages in our society, it's important to ensure students are media literate. The Oscars provide a great opportunity to use the year's best films to teach students about media and film literacy -- they can also be an engaging teaching tool that provokes students' interest in a variety of subjects and issues. Here, we're providing some classroom resources from around the Web:

Een audiotour, maar niet in een museum, of op straat, maar op je ipad. Door het web. Waar kunstenaars moordenaars zijn en filosofen gokkers, terwijl de onderwereld bevolkt wordt door quantumtheoretici. Confused? You will be.

Jesús Torres Junquera's curator insight, March 4, 2013 10:05 AM

En palabras de Robin Good, desde donde rescoopit-amos esta nueva herramienta: 

Annotag es una nueva aplicación web que permite etiquetar y anotar cualquier clip de vídeo: grabado o cargado desde YouTube o Vimeo.
Gracias a ello se puede pasar fácilmente a las partes que se deseen de cualquier vídeo etiquetado: así resultará más accesible e informativo.

Una vez marcado y anotado un vídeo se podrá compartir en de sus canales preferidos de medios sociales o utilizar el "código de inserción" para publicar en su sitio web.

Annotag permite crear múltiples categorías en el canal, con objeto de facilitar la agrupación de los clips en carpetas.

Es posible añadir colaboradores adicionales: editores a su canal, integrar los comentarios de Disqus, Google Analytics y seleccionar un canal público "look" de la página Annotag propia, eligiendo entre una variedad de diferentes plantillas ya preparadas.

Project-based learning (PBL) is one of the hotter trends in classrooms these days. Simply put, it gets students to collaborate and work together to create and launch projects. Those projects can be just about anything. In our experience here at Edudemic, we’ve seen many projects be centered around creating video productions that can be shared on sites like YouTube or other video sites.

Podcasts are a great way to get information when you’re driving in your car, making dinner at home, or waiting at the DMV to renew your license. Podcasts don’t force you to find more time in your day; they give you the opportunity to capitalize on all the dead time that already exists in your day by simply downloading the .mp3 or syncing a podcast to your iTunes account on your smartphone.

Even though podcasts have been around awhile, a lot of people still don’t utilize the hundreds of free podcasts available on the Internet. Now is a great time to start.
