Videotelling is a teacher resource book which outlines a completely novel approach to using video content in the classroom. It consists of 45 immersive stories, each of which is based on the narrative of an authentic online video (adverts, short films, viral videos, etc.).
The interactive stories are suitable for learners of all ages and are designed to be told by the teacher in the traditional way. This means that technology takes a back seat and viewing of the video comes later.
Stories are accompanied by ready-to-use tasks and activities which show teachers how to get students listening, thinking, speaking, writing, collaborating, problem solving, and creating videos and stories of their own.
Videotelling is beautifully illustrated and designed for a great reading experience. An accompanying website provides links to all videos.
