  • IMPORTANT! • It is important to expose students to real language used in context because that motivates them. • Studies show that students who listen to authentic oral materials exhibit greater listening comprehension View slide
  • • Students are now available to learn and manipulate language through the creation of their own podcasts and screencast projects. View slide
  • PODCASTS • It is a digital file that is created and posted on the internet and can be played back on a mobile device or on a personal computer at a time convenient. • Pod: play on demand • http://www.podcastdirectory.com/episodes/how-to-

  • • The most popular way to subscribe to podcasts is to use iTunes. It is a free software in which users have hundreds of podcasts available. • http://www.apple.com/itunes/podcasts/
  • Web-based podcasts • www.podcastalley.com/ • www.podcastpickle.com/ • www.podcastdirectory.com
  • Examples in class • You can listen to a podcast about something specific and ask your students to write down words. (challenging, funny, interesting, etc) then, students can make their glossary with words used in context. • You can use podcasts to listen to poems.
  • Be careful! • When choosing a podcast, make sure it contains meaningful language, and real- world communication. • There are many people out there who create podcast which are not ok for teaching.
  • vodcasts • They are similar to podcasts but they have video, too. • Vod: video on demand • Vodcasts are also posted on the internet and they can be played on a mobile device or on a personal computer. • Students can connect visuals to the audio.
  • Screencasts • They are digital recording of computer screen output, also known as a video screen capture, often containing audio narration. • The term compares with the related term screenshot. Screenshots generate a single picture of a computer screen so the screencast is a movie of the these pictures enhanced with narration.
  • Why screencasts? • Improve student learning • Available all the time • Students control the pace, start/stop/replay • Focus on one topic
  • Free programs • www.screenr.com • www.camstudio.com • http://www.techsmith.com/download/jing/ • http://www.screencast-o-matic.com/ • http://screencast.com/
  • Genres • Tutorials • How-to • Demo • Featured story
  • • When doing screencasts, do not add unnecesary things or images. • Whatever that does not help to tell the story is just baggage. Dump it and focus on the story. • Do not make either of them too long to keep your students attention.
