We all like to watch movies, a video clips or a good video. So, why do not use them as a teaching tool? Videos are a great tool for both teachers and students. Some of the benefits of using videos as an educational tool are:
- It allows to prepare a lesson in advance, and you can share that lesson with many groups and students.
- You can be as creative as you wish, since you can record yourself explaining a lesson, or you can use different images to develop the topic.
- Usually videos are short, so students can quickly be introduced to a topic that could be develop on class.
- Are entertained and fun.
For my ICT course, I created a proposal for my students using Movie Maker. It is a video about advertising and marketing vocabulary, and I explained each term using images that reflect the concept. Here is my video, I hope you like it!
