The changing use of video in teaching and learning : CAMELOT

During this presentation, Sally will talk about how and why video is increasingly seen as a useful teaching tool. She will trace the changes that are taking place in relation to the use of video for teaching and learning and provide several examples from different applications in different parts of Europe. Many of the examples she will show are based on entries received in the annual Medea Awards and she will use these examples as a way to highlight what can constitute excellence on the use of video for teaching and learning.

Academic speaking: persuasive techniques from Patrick Andrews

Teaching on a course for teachers from universities in China, I found quite a lot of interest in teaching persuasion.  Here are some materials that I have developed on the area, making use of a TED talk.

There are also elements of developing critical analysis in that the learners are encouraged to think of the extent to which some of the claims are justified and the extent to which the speaker is trying to manipulate the listener.

Shona Whyte's insight:

He's also running a MOOC, but it's nearly over, I guess.

Vocational English mobile learning route | VISIR

Vocational English mobile learning route | VISIR | TELT | Scoop.it

Wanna have a a conversation in English  while you walk?  The project is all about learning English outside the classroom by walking through a mobile learning route packed with  qr-code.


Qr-codes are linked to YouTube-videos, where a native English speaker asks different questions. Students read the qr-codes with the qr-reader app on their mobile device. Then they watch the videos and answer the questions by making a video, recording audio clip, making a comic strip and/or writing the answer on the notebook on their device. 

 

Students can send their products to their own blog and/or they can be watched together in the classroom.

VideoANT: A free video annotation tool

VideoANT: A free video annotation tool | TELT | Scoop.it
I have used VideoANT for a number of things. Here are some ideas to get your started:

Bookmarking sections of the video: I mark the start of the section I would like my students to watch and add the questions in the ‘Content’ section of the annotation. Students then click on the time marker and watch that part of the video. They can then add their responses/answers by clicking on the ‘Respond’ button.
Video slideshows: Students make a screencast of their slide presentation and then share it with other students who can then comment on things. I encourage students to add ‘audience participation’ questions to their presentation so students can add comments using the annotation tool.
Mini lessons: I make a short video lesson and then post it for students to watch and add questions and even writing practice in the annotation.
Group projects: Students in groups watch the video separately, adding their comments so they can then come together in class to discuss their findings.
Transcripts: Some videos on YouTube have transcripts, but many don’t. You can add your own transcripts this way by adding your annotation before the text in the video.

Arizona State University, Claire McLaughlin's curator insight, July 17, 2015 10:45 AM

This is quite an extensive bank of listening sites.  Some are familiar (Ted Talks, ELLLO, NPR's Story Corps and VOA) but there are many others that include stories, news and interviews from around the world, and academic lectures. Several of the sites are specifically for English language learners.  This impressive library of listening material should be on every ESL/EFL teacher's favorites.
