Tools of the Trade: Utilizing the Video-iPod to Deliver Engaging EFL Content

Date: Sunday, February 18th, 2007 Time: 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM

Speaker: Bill Pellowe

Using only a video iPod, the presenter will demonstrate numerous ways that this new tool can be utilized to deliver both authentic and teacher-created material to the EFL classroom. The video iPod can be used either as a basic stimulus/ schema activator, supplemental support, or as the main content of a language lesson. Learn how to use video, slides (which are more commonly associated with laptops and PowerPoint), photos and audio, including podcasts, the latest online trend, to better engage students. Technological tips, along with a detailed handout that includes web-based supplementary materials, will be provided. Come and experience why the iPod is actually an affordable alternative to other technologies such as laptop computers.
