Using Film to Teach English in a World of Screens
The advent of the digital revolution and the Internet, the proliferation of mobile devices, which allow us to easily and proficiently capture moving images; the introduction of inexpensive, accessible and user-friendly editing tools; and the emergence of distribution sites such as YouTube and Vimeo, have changed the way moving images relate to society, education and language learning forever. This session examines and offers guidance on using moving images critically and creatively in language teaching in a world of screens.
