This is my first video teaching task. I used Video Impression 2 which is an old video editor which with my old digital camera. It works quite well, though, to make short videos. I have just purchased better video software for Windows and will try that out and I use iMovie on my school laptop. I wanted to start the year differently. My students know I will ask them about their holidays. They won’t know there will be a video introduction. The year 9s will have to learn the passé composé and the activities first and I have a slide presentation for that and then a doc with the key vocabulary which is also practised in this video. Video Impression makes it as an AVI file so it is not as clear on YouTube as the version I will run on my computer. Students then will have a copy of the video, the doc and the PowerPoint to consult. My senior students will use this as revision and they will go onto Twiducate which I use all the time with them to practise their French. They know what to do and their question will be – how long?
