Using Video to Increase Language Performance
Kerner, Thomas
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Annual CamTESOL Conference on English Language Teaching (4th, Phnom Penh, Cambodia, Feb 23-24, 2008)
This paper describes and supports (through citations of published literature) video-based activities that help English (and any other) language learners of all ages and skill levels to acquire and express integrated reading, writing, speaking and listening skills. The paper discusses the use of video to develop and elicit language with an emphasis on clarity of situation-specific communication. By learning how to supplement existing curricular tools with readily available video materials, teachers will acquire ideas and activities that they can implement immediately in their classrooms with minimal preparation. These activities will increase both the level of engagement of students in learning tasks and their subsequent language performance. The author also advises on how to adapt video for assessing performance.
