 MEC Trainer,

TeacherTube is an online community for sharing videos. It is a site where teachers can post videos designed for students to view in order to learn a concept or skill.

The most important thing about this website is the fact that videos refer to our students’ interests and discuss their everyday life. The videos might also be attractive to students as a lot of them are made by their peers. The language in the videos is real and provides students with a chance to experience various accents.

Teachers can also find some videos that provide them with tips on how to teach effectively.

You are using you could send particular videos to your students as homework with a set of questions to answer. Videos could start a speaking class, stimulate students to express opinions. You might want to use videos as the basis of bigger projects. Alternatively, you might ask students to make their own videos and publish them on the site.

Example of videos:

Texting and Literacy

Cry Me a Verb (maybe your students could do something similar about Irregular verbs in English)

Introduction to The Catcher in the Rye

Interactive Read-Aloud

How NOT To Use PowerPoint
