Creating Videos for the English classroom

Teachers and students can also produce videos. Teachers normally do it to give explanations and instructions.




But we can also ask pupils to do in order to practise speaking and interact with others.


How to start, make and edit videos

A good site to start and learn what to do is this school of video at Vimeo site

We can also ask pupils to use programs that record what is on the computer screen and talk about pictures, or about anything they show on the screen while the talk.
Jing is one of the best programs to do that, it is free and can be downloaded and use
