Using multimedia in classes

Unread postby robby » Sat Oct 14, 2006 5:53 am

Hey all,

As you know most of the major ESL textbooks are supplied with an audio CDs which makes them boring to play in the classes. Wouldn't it be nice if these listenings and conversations were in a video format to make them more interesting and real. I bet the students would pay more attention if they could watch a clip. What do you think?
There are so many great movies out there which I'm sure we can find a good clip out of them to replace those listenings. Anyone interested in participating in such a project?

Dear Robby,

Check out the following URLs and then take advantage of them to develop a productive lesson plan for your students:

http://video.google.com/
http://video.yahoo.com/
http://movies.msn.com/
http://lycos.ifilm.com/

Well, that should get you up and running. If you wish to talk to me further about curriculum development, just drop by my on-line school and talk with me directly.


Sincerely,

Eric Paul Monroe
