Training Pre-Service Chinese Language Teachers to Create Instructional Video to Enhance Classroom Instruction
Wang, Lih-Ching Chen; Wang, Ming-Chian Ken
International Association for Development of the Information Society, Paper presented at the International Conferences on Education Technologies (ICEduTech) and Sustainability, Technology and Education (STE) (New Tapei City, Taiwan, Dec 10-12, 2014)
Foreign language instruction is a complex and challenging task made even more so by situations in which the learner's native language is radically different from the foreign language being mastered. Nowhere is this more evident than in the case of native English speakers seeking to learn Mandarin Chinese. The rapid increase in the availability and sophistication of video editing has made it possible for classroom teachers to create their own instructional video materials to assist their students' learning process. The presentation will explain the advantages of doing so, and will describe the activities of one program that trains pre-service Chinese language teachers to create their own instructional video materials as part of their teaching licensure program, as well as discussing the reactions of the teachers to these activities. Samples of student-created video materials will be shared. [For the complete proceedings, see ED557181.]
