The project will be completed in steps, comprising:
- Research on the use of video in language teaching
- Resource Development
- Making the practices accessible
- Preparation for Piloting
- In-service Teacher training course and online & offline workshops
In addition there will be separate work packages for:
- Quality control (Monitoring & Evaluation)
Research on the use of video in language teaching
A research will be undertaken to give background and additional information on the use of video in language education. This will include academic literature, case studies and best practices.
Will build at least 50 language practices using language video media and techniques.
Each of the 50 language practices will be described within a template, with examples of usage differentiated by the age, CEFR levels and, were appropriate, a ‘How to’ video. The practices will be targeted at language educators so that they will be able to understand how they can use them in their teaching. The deliverables will target each age and CEFR level, and be divided in to Template documents and ‘How to’ video.
Making the practices accessible
Ensure the usability of the, potentially, 300 templates and videos resources.
Preparation for Piloting
Organizing the materials produced in the previous WPs within a didactic format and will complete them with a theoretical background that will ground the pedagogic approach.
From February until May 2014, a series of online and offline piloting events will take place to test the practices, video and documents produced in WP3 & WP 5.
In-service Teacher training course and online & offline workshops
After analysis of the piloting evaluation results, the partners will be ready to perfect the practices and the transferability methodology. Therefore, by using the programme of the tested sessions, they will design the In-Service training course as well as the final layout of online and offline workshops.
