Language, Camera, Action! Motivating Young Learners with Video Back in the sepia-tinged days of 2010 when I was still very much finding my way around blogs and Twitter, I was virtually introduced to Barbara and she kindly offered me the chance to do a guest post here on Teaching Village about how I used PowerPoint in class. 18 months on, we again get the chance to collaborate as part of the EVO 2012 Digital Storytelling for Young Learners team along with some other fantastic educators, namely Shelly Terrell, Özge Karaoğlu, Esra Girgin, Jennifer Verschoor, Michelle Worgan, and Sabrina De Vita (full details are included at the end of this post). As part of our EVO event, I will co-moderate a session about Video Stories with Young Learners with Özge. As a prelude to that, am delighted to have the chance to return to Teaching Village to share some of the ideas I’ve used in class, often with little more than a video-recording device and some editing software – and creative young students of course!

graphic organizer Preface If you access the link to the recording it would be great if you would just leave a short comment on this post to let me know. I would really like to know if it is useful to people when I post the overviews & recording links Introduction One of those rare sessions where I was not actually there! The Session Shelly began with some introductory information and talked about the most simple forms of graphic organiser. The next part of the session included a variety of ideas on using GO with students – Shelly showed us some great images of mind maps/GO from her students. Next Shelly used Application Share to share a wiki with links for a wide variety of graphic organisers/mindmapping. Finally it was a return to the original graphic organiser to complete the “what as been learnt” and “how to find out more” sections. Conclusion As is always the case with Shelly’s sessions this was terrific! Next Webinar In the Future
