Transcript of Videos for Teen Learners

Videos for Teens Using LearnEnglishTeens in the Classroom How to use video Other considerations Pausing Transcripts Self-access study Post-viewing Pre-viewing While viewing Video vs Listening 21st century Considerations Advantages Why use video? -availability
-wide range of topics
-the here & now
-teens as consumers of video -visual clues make input comprehensible
-paralinguistic features
-various formats & genres
-expands learners' horizons
-always new content
-access in & out of the classroom
-multiple intelligences & learning styles
-interest and motivation -technological requirements
-appropriacy (content)
-language level
-interest/motivation -video with no sound (predict according to paralinguistic features) Impacts learner comprehension & success
Should be no more than 10 minutes
Teachers can:
-Provide key vocabulary
-Allow learners to pre-view the while-listening questions
-Activate prior knowledge Simple activities - it's difficult for learners to watch, listen and write simultaneously

Learners can (1st viewing):
-answer yes/no questions
-answer true/false statements
-count items
Learners can (2nd viewing)
-sequence events
-answer multiple choice questions
-complete gap fills -Plan in advance at what point to pause the video
-Ask Wh- questions (comprehension check & focus the learners)
-Make predictions
-Draw attention to specific linguistic features
-Segment videos into manageable chunks -Should be used at the end
-Language-focused option (marking grammatical structures and vocabulary)
-Listening-focused option (help with decoding and noticing accents or non-standard pronunciations)

Tip - LearnEnglishTeens provides transcripts. Challenge - Learners could try to create a transcript. -video off with audio on (predict from sounds and then watch the video) -Learners can:
-Watch videos and complete online exercises (option to hand in worksheets)
-Select a video and report back to the class
