Five-Minute Film Festival: 8 Interactive Video Tools for Engaging Learners

Five-Minute Film Festival: 8 Interactive Video Tools for Engaging Learners | Tech and the ESL Teacher | Scoop.it

"It's no secret that I am a passionate advocate for using video in the classroom. When used well, videos can help students make connections to people and ideas beyond their usual frame of reference. That's why I've been really excited to see a wave of new (and mostly free or low-cost!) tech tools recently that enable teachers to take favorite clips and make them more valuable for educational use. Whether you use videos to flip your classroom or you just appreciate the power of video to engage kids, maybe one of the tools in my playlist below will help you go deeper in 2014."
