Language Learning with Digital Video
- Product Reviews
Language Learning with Digital Video is for teachers who are interested in using a range of video in the language classroom, from documentaries to You Tube clips, and learner-generated material. The book contains a variety of generic, easy-to-use, practical activities as well as a number of ready-made worksheets for specific video clips. Activities require minimal preparation and are suitable for a range of ages and levels, and for both the experienced and less experienced teacher. There is also a useful list of sources, detailing a wide range of video clips, plus a bank of technical tips and advice.
Highly recommendedReviewed by Pete Sharma
“Part one of this exciting new resource book looks at video exploitation, part two at video creation. The introduction explains some key terms, such as mashups and remixing. Part one provides teaching ideas for using a wide variety of digital videos, including film trailers, adverts and music videos. Part two organises activities into four levels of difficulty, depending on the amount of technical know-how required and the amount of creative challenge involved. The authors include a useful bank of technical tips and a good list of video sources. This highly practical, 206-page book is full of inventive ideas. In one task, students produce a deliberately bad remake of a famous film; in another, they use editing skills to re-order a shuffled video clip. Highly recommended”.
