WATCHING & SHARING VIDEOS
FOR THOSE WHO DIDN´T SIGN UP FOR THE ORAL PRESENTATION THIS WEEK AND ARE STILL INTERESTED
WHY DON´T YOU RECORD YOURSELF ON VIDEO TOGETHER WITH YOUR PRESENTATION?
This tool allows you to upload your PowerPoint /Prezi or Google presentation and then record yourself doing the presentation and even include your webcam. Then anyone can access it on the internet and watch and listen to you presenting. Great for your students to get them practising their presentations and great for language teachers as you can get your students to make presentations and practise their language. Of course, it´s not the same as talking in front of an audience but it might be pretty similar….. you are video recorded looking at your computer screen…NOT READING….
THIS IS AN EXAMPLE MADE BY A TEACHER
THIS IS ME USING SCREEN-O-CAST:
WHY DON´T YOU HAVE A GO AT IT?
HAVE YOU EVER HEARD OF THE “MOSQUITO TONE“?
WHAT´S IT ALL ABOUT? WATCH THIS VIDEO
- HAVE A CAREFUL LOOK AT THE PICTURE & DISCUSS THE DIFFERENCES THEY CAN SEE & THE DIFFERENCES THEY CAN GUESS EXIST BETWEEN THE FAMILY SHOWN IN THE PHOTO AND THEIR OWN FAMILY. (TRY TO USE USED TO, WOULD, PAST SIMPLE….)
- WATCH THIS VIDEO ADVERT. IT´S CALLED “GRANDPA” AND IT TRIES TO SHOW THAT THE LIFESTYLE ENJOYED BY OUR GRANDPARENTS CAN BE BENEFICIAL.
- WATCH THE VIDEO TWICE & WRITE DOWN ANY DIFFERENCES THEY CAN SEE BETWEEN THE MAN TODAY AND HIS GRANDFATHER: healthy eating, stress,working conditions, means of transport, relationships, habits …….
