People often say that a picture is worth a thousand words, but don’t you think it is also worth a thousand activities? Learn how photos taken with smartphones and tablets can make the regular classroom language practice more fun, engaging and dynamic through activities suitable for different levels and ages.
Based on an international collaborative project, teachers and students from three countries met online to produce a video together sharing media in the Cloud. A highlight was the participation of special education needs and gifted students along with regular students to build language and intercultural competence.
In this presentation we propose to show some student produced videos of teachers from public schools both in Sao Paulo and Brasilia and suggest activities that could be used to raise awareness in teenage students of topics that are considered important by other youth as themselves.
