Video for the Web in the Japanese Classroom

Date: Friday, June 4th, 2004 Time: 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Speaker: Nicolas Gromik (Tohoku University) and Brian Teaman (Osaka Jogakuin College)

(Please note that this event is free only if you have pre-registered by May 5 for the JALT CALL 9th Annual Conference on June 5th and 6th. Otherwise the cost is 2,000 yen (discounts are available for JALT, LET and JACET members).
In this workshop, Nicolas Gromik and Brian Teaman share their extensive experience with web-based video. Gromik's strengths are in Windows and Movie Maker for student-created projects, while Teaman offers his experience with the Macintosh and Premiere for web-based learning materials. The core of this workshop will be presented by Gromik, who will demonstrate how to use and teach MS Movie Maker to Japanese students. Participants will learn how to:

  • teach Movie Maker;
  • edit a film;
  • create resources and learn how to use them;
  • implement a mini-documentary project
  • create a time line to incorporate it in the curriculum.
MS Movie Maker allows the participant to edit a range of educational projects, and hence empowers students in their creative expression of original ideas in English. Participants will be able to explore aspects of Gromik's research with this extremely basic yet exciting tool. Teaman provides additional assistance on getting high quality audio for video and presents information on Macintosh, Premiere, Quicktime, and RealAudio. Come join us for some hands-on experience and sharing of any questions about this growing area of CALL. (Available in JAPANESE at
