Wordless media in elementary school multilingual classrooms: opening minds (Images)

Around the world there are classrooms with mixed proficiency in the instruction language, for instance caused by migration. This poses challenges as well as opportunities for teaching and learning. Wordless media are explored as a tool for opening minds and sparking ideas and interactions in an international elementary classroom.

Student-made video projects to enhance speaking skills - the Book
Rob Howard

Since 2007, I‘ve been using student-made video projects to stimulate teenaged students to plan, script, film and present a variety of videos that have increased oral production, confidence and fluency through out-of-class assignments with varied subjects. This talk will outline the methodology, implementation and benefits. This will promote a book.
