Video in our lessons has the power to INTEREST and engage learners. Content-rich video can also INFORM so that students learn something new about the world. And thirdly, effective use of video allows us to INTEGRATE it into our language teaching at any level. In this presentation I’ll illustrate these three i’s by using video material from wide-ranging sources. We’ll also look at how the three ‘I’ model can help avoid the trap of video merely being ‘entertainment’ in the classroom. I’ll present practical activities you can use in your lessons tomorrow.
