Hola Leo

 

 

Learners write and create a subject to narrate their experience in a foreign country. They write a script in the target language and shoot the mini-documentary in target language,  following the script that they wrote.   At the end they can subtitle the documentary in the mother tongue.   Alternatively, the video could be realized in the mother tongue  and subtitled in the target language. In this case the learning objectives are different.

 

Video for homework

 

Using an integrated video recording tool within his course page on a Moodle VLE, this Higher Education student has submitted a video assignment which was set for homework. The assignment set a topic which he reflected on, he prepared a script and then performed the response, recording it using his laptop webcam connecting through the virtual learning environment in his student room. Once he was happy with the recording, he was able to submit it for marking to his tutor.

If these walls could talk

Photo stories combine still images and text to create a simple story. Photo stories rely on basic ideas of video production, they offer an opportunity to provide discussion starters for e new topic. A range of technologies are available to combine still images and text, such as Microsoft Powerpoint. Music can be added to give atmosphere. This example was created as part of the Divis project.

Video presentations

 

Created with a group of asylum seekers (Afghanistan, Pakistan, Sub Saharan Africa) within a task based language (Italian  as  L2) learning programme. Learners briefly present themselves to the video camera: who they are, where they come from, what they can do and what they like to do. As preparation, the learners can organise the presentation in a written form.

Present your school

School presentations are a universal video format where students introduce their own school. The productions can range from simple slide shows to sophisticated video productions. They are useful outcomes for European cooperation and exchange. The core ideas have been developed within the DIVIS project: http://divisproject.eu

Include specific vocabulary related to school in an authentic setting. Develop presentation skills in the foreign language.

Introducing yourself

This is a talking head video, where most of the screen is taken up with the image of the person introducing themselves. Made as part of a virtual exchange collaboration between students of German at Warwick University Language Centre and students of Media in Stuttgart. Connecting using Google+, the students scripted and created short video clips which they exchanged on their G+ community page.

Poem realisation

Poem Realisation

 

 

A compilation of Creative Commons licensed images and good quality audio recording of a poem produced by a student in Higher Education who has completed a Beginner’s course in French. Combining an audio track with a collection of images to create a video poem is a simple technique and ensures that the meaning and delivery of the poem is examined. The resulting reosurce can be used by others for commentary or remixing.

Student reflecting

 

 

In this example we can see the students reflecting on a lesson. The student has done a class with the teacher and the teacher has given all the students in the class a set of questions to think about after the lesson. The student has written the questions into a PowerPoint  presentation and then loaded them up onto Present.Me. The student has then recorded the answers and shared the link with the teacher. This means the students practice the target language and reflect on the lesson.

Video Words

The original Speech Bubbles idea is based on children presenting words in their own mother tongue to other children across Europe (the programmes were broadcast on local television). Equally words in a foreign language can be presented. This practice is more suited for the lower language competences.

Words can be chosen from any theme which is done as part of the language lesson.

Television News

Learners can produce news articles (one clip about one topic) or full news programmes (a collection of news articles) based on their own topics – news from the school, events, trips, local topics. Opportunities to exmplore the many roles involved in news preparation and presenting. Focus: writing of factual script; presentation in front of the camera. News programmes will help the writing skills and presentation skills (pronunciation) while additionally giving an insight into the production of TV news.
