Nagasaki JALT:

Versatile Video iPods as Classroom Tools

Date: Saturday, September 23rd, 2006 Time: 1:30 PM - 3:30 PM

Speaker: Bill Pellowe of Kinki University, Iizuka campus

All of the activities demonstrated by the presenter could be done by teachers who do not have video iPods, but the presenter will claim that the video iPod is actually an affordable alternative to other technologies such as laptop computers. Using only a video iPod, the presenter will demonstrate a number of ways that this new tool can be used during lessons to deliver material to the classroom, whether that material is a basic stimulus, a supplemental support, or the main content of the lesson. This includes using videos, slides (which are more commonly associated with laptops and PowerPoint), photos and audio, including podcasts, the latest online trend. To save time, participants will not be asked to "be students" during the activies; instead, the activities will simply be modeled. A detailed handout with web-based supplementary materials will be provided. All welcome for our sixth meeting of the year!

P.S. Please note also that election nominations to Nagasaki JALT's 2007 executive board are open now through October. Positions will be decided prior to the JALT Conference in Kitakyushu from November 2-5.
