MicaelaCarey 9:05 PM Hi everyone  #ELTchat
Marisa_C 9:05 PM There is so much out there available and so easy to snip off just the bit you need I think I could just use videos to teach #eltchat
Shaunwilden 9:05 PM @naomishema yes or sets up a clear context better than say a text #ELTchat
naomishema 9:05 PM Meant " use OF films" sorry for the typo. Late here... #eltchat
SueAnnan 9:06 PM #ELTChat important thing about length though. I don't think it should be used as a baby sitter
Marisa_C 9:06 PM RT @MarjorieRosenbe: I use Vicki Hollett's one-min English videos. Mt sts love them! & there are worksheets to go with them. #eltchat
Marisa_C 9:06 PM RT @Shaunwilden: @naomishema yes or sets up a clear context better than say a text #ELTchat
MarjorieRosenbe 9:06 PM I use Vicki Hollett's one-min English videos. Mt sts love them! & there are worksheets to go with them. #eltchat

Wiktor_K 9:06 PM @naomishema both versions I'd agree with :) #eltchat
Marisa_C 9:07 PM @kierandonaghy Welcome and congrats again #ELTchat for your #ELTons triumph :-)
leoselivan 9:07 PM I use a lot of short clips / scenes from films #eltchat
Shaunwilden 9:07 PM RT @kierandonaghy: @Marisa_C @teacherphili Hi, I'm here and very happy to answer any questions about my site or using short films.#ELTchat
naomishema 9:07 PM @MarjorieRosenbe Thanks 2 telling me about them. I tend to use ones not intended 4 english teaching #eltchat
elawassell 9:07 PM RT @MarjorieRosenbe: I use Vicki Holletts one-min English videos. Mt sts love them! & there are worksheets to go with them. #ELTchat
Marisa_C 9:07 PM @MarjorieRosenbe haven't seen them lately can you send a link? #ELTchat
teacherphili 9:07 PM Paralinguistic features of videos helpful to convey meaning #eltchat
Shaunwilden 9:07 PM @MarjorieRosenbe i only came across them at the weekend, they are very well done #ELTchat
sandymillin 9:08 PM RT @Shaunwilden: #eltchat tonight is looking at exploiting short film / video clips http://t.co/Otnx9pc7e2
Shaunwilden 9:08 PM @kierandonaghy @Marisa_C @teacherphili what's your main criteria for choosing a clip to use? #ELTchat
Marisa_C 9:08 PM What tools have you found useful for snipping bits off videos? #ELTchat
naomishema 9:08 PM RT @teacherphili: Ideal length of video: 3-5 minutes.  #eltchat  we're not babysitters, after all. agree with @SueAnnan
mattellman 9:08 PM @SueAnnan Agreed, more than a few minutes and stds slip into a "TV trance"! #ELTchat
Wiktor_K 9:08 PM @SueAnnan babysitter use is a problem, but some deeper context (cultural etc) could really only go through with long vids, no? #eltchat
naomishema 9:08 PM RT @Marisa_C: @kierandonaghy Welcome and congrats again #ELTchat for your #ELTons triumph :-) Big Mazal Tov!
teacherphili 9:08 PM Ideal length of video: 3-5 minutes.  #eltchat  we're not babysitters, after all. agree with @SueAnnan
SueAnnan 9:09 PM RT @mattellman: @SueAnnan Agreed, more than a few minutes and stds slip into a "TV trance"! #ELTchat
Wiktor_K 9:09 PM @kierandonaghy you're welcome. Remember the #ELTchat tag with your message so the chatters can read your updates :)
naomishema 9:09 PM RT @kierandonaghy: Short films have a much greater dramatic impact than feature length films shown over a number of session.  #eltchat
pysproblem81 9:09 PM #eltchat - what do people think are the aspects of literacy that learners need to learn to interpret in films? (etc paralinguistic features)
kierandonaghy 9:09 PM Short films have a much greater dramatic impact than feature length films shown over a number of session.  #eltchat
Marisa_C 9:09 PM @Shaunwilden @kierandonaghy @teacherphili good question - criteria for choosing #ELTchat
MicaelaCarey 9:09 PM #ELTchat I use a lot of short video clips with my Young learners- helps them visualize some of the CLIL topics, etc
naomishema 9:09 PM @Wiktor_K @SueAnnan If u want the students to get many things out of the film use part in class and have 'em watch the rest at home #eltchat
LizziePinard 9:09 PM RT @SueAnnan: #ELTChat important thing about length though. I don't think it should be used as a baby sitter
sandymillin 9:10 PM http://t.co/aR6h6mBIqU is an easy tool to use to clip youtube videos if you only want to show part of them #eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 9:10 PM @Shaunwilden @kierandonaghy @Marisa_C @teacherphili I go for the topic. #eltchat
leoselivan 9:10 PM RT @teacherphili: Ideal length of video: 3-5 minutes.  #eltchat  we're not babysitters, after all. agree with @SueAnnan >agree!
Marisa_C 9:10 PM @Wiktor_K @kierandonaghy thanks WIktor #ELTchat
naomishema 9:11 PM RT @Marisa_C: I also like some great animation videos without words #ELTchat > I particularly use ones without words, lend 2 so many options
mattellman 9:11 PM RT @sandymillin: http://t.co/aR6h6mBIqU is an easy tool to use to clip youtube videos if you only want to show part of them #eltchat
Wiktor_K 9:11 PM Agree with the length thing. Also easier to focus hard on a few choice bits of language if films short. #eltchat
LizziePinard 9:11 PM RT @sandymillin: http://t.co/aR6h6mBIqU is an easy tool to use to clip youtube videos if you only want to show part of them #eltchat
elawassell 9:11 PM RT @SueAnnan: important thing about length. (...) < Agree, I lend my students DVDs to watch @ home. I use short clips at lessons. #ELTchat
kierandonaghy 9:11 PM Short films often deal with 1 theme or make 1 statement & are therefore great prompts for oral & written communication activities.  #eltchat
Marisa_C 9:11 PM I also like some great animation videos without words #ELTchat
mattellman 9:12 PM @kierandonaghy They're often not known to stds as well, which I think can get in the way sometimes when you use famous clips #ELTchat
Marisa_C 9:12 PM @MarjorieRosenbe that's a great one - and her resolutions scene great for the future :-) and great fun #ELTchat
Wiktor_K 9:12 PM @MarjorieRosenbe Mwahaha. Pre-teach "awkward"?
kierandonaghy 9:12 PM Ideal length of short film should be less than 10 minutes, any longer there's cognitive / inforamtionoverload  #eltchat
SueAnnan 9:12 PM @Marisa_C I sometimes use Pingu for intonation work :-) #ELTchat
Shaunwilden 9:12 PM @MarjorieRosenbe the topic as in 'oo that'd be good to use' or 'i have to teach X i wonder if i can find a video'? #ELTchat
elawassell 9:12 PM Let me rephrase it: I lend DVDs to my students ;-)
Marisa_C 9:12 PM Ideally short videos could/should replace old audio for listening comprehension #ELTchat
MarjorieRosenbe 9:12 PM I show he presentation scene from Brigit Jones to see what NOT to do. #eltchat
mattellman 9:13 PM @Marisa_C Agreed, perhaps then we'd need less pre-teaching vocab/activating schemata etc before listening? #ELTchat
MarjorieRosenbe 9:13 PM http://t.co/MTU300GvA6 And another one. #eltchat
Marisa_C 9:13 PM RT @MarjorieRosenbe: http://t.co/tSfAXjFayZ Here's one link. #eltchat VIcky Hollet's one minute videos
Shaunwilden 9:13 PM @kierandonaghy well don't disagree with the 10m doesn't the overload depend on what you're doing with the clip? #ELTchat
naomishema 9:13 PM RT @SueAnnan: @Marisa_C I sometimes use Pingu for intonation work :-) #ELTchat Pingu is great! Love that idea!
MarjorieRosenbe 9:13 PM http://t.co/HyP1j41Qv8 Here's one link. #eltchat
sandymillin 9:13 PM I haven't used that many short films.All the 1s I have used are either from @kierandonaghy or @steve_muir's http://t.co/vFWMyWtbon #eltchat
elawassell 9:13 PM RT @kierandonaghy: Ideal length of short film should be less than 10 minutes, any longer theres cognitive / inforamtionoverload  #ELTchat
Marisa_C 9:14 PM @mattellman yes - much of that is done to counteract pain of absence of visual contact #ELTchat
mattellman 9:14 PM RT @SueAnnan: @Marisa_C I sometimes use Pingu for intonation work :-) #ELTchat
teacherphili 9:14 PM @Shaunwilden hmmm criteria, well apart from short length, sth that is engaging, can be paused for prediction, has a narrative #eltchat
LizziePinard 9:14 PM #eltchat Ive read watching harder than listening for ss if must divide attention between it & question paper & if visual/words don't match
SueAnnan 9:14 PM @naomishema @Marisa_C It's really effective #ELTchat
LizziePinard 9:15 PM RT @naomishema: @LizziePinard While watching I don't let students look at wksht. either pre-read or after #eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 9:15 PM Business Adv. series by CUP also has DVDs in the books. Helpful for business students. #eltchat
LizziePinard 9:15 PM @naomishema good plan! #eltchat
elawassell 9:15 PM RT @MarjorieRosenbe: http://t.co/T1zU8LlnD5 Heres one link. <-I've seen it! Brilliant!
naomishema 9:15 PM @LizziePinard While watching I don't let students look at wksht. either pre-read or after #eltchat
SueAnnan 9:15 PM #ELTchat RT @NancyW: Nice ideas! 10 Video Projects Every Teacher Should Try: http://t.co/xHtpofAtrq
MarjorieRosenbe 9:15 PM I like these videos because they teach and entertain - also Am E and Br E all in one video. #eltchat
naomishema 9:16 PM The problem then becomes finding clips with natural but understandable language... #ELTchat > don't need film to have dialogue to teach!
MarjorieRosenbe 9:16 PM http://t.co/N0yyEfA7qg On PEO we also make use of video clips in some of the activities for business. #eltchat
Marisa_C 9:16 PM @SueAnnan missing sth here - what's pingu pls? #eltchat not familiar
kierandonaghy 9:16 PM @sandymillin @steve_muir I agree, Sandy. Steve's site is great for TV clips http://t.co/9V8DqcRlxi #eltchat
mattellman 9:16 PM @Marisa_C The problem then becomes finding clips with natural but understandable language... #ELTchat
Marisa_C 9:17 PM @mattellman which why Ts usually take mental notes even when watching films for pleasure - Oh! good bit for my lesson next week :-) #eltchat
mattellman 9:17 PM Quality has to be a criterion! Remember Mark and Allie? Not the highest production standards, and it makes a difference! #ELTchat
Marisa_C 9:18 PM @sandymillin not mine - :-) #eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 9:18 PM @Marisa_C Have to look at that one. #eltchat
Wiktor_K 9:18 PM RT @elawassell: What sort of activities do you do after watching the video? #eltchat
naomishema 9:18 PM If film has a good / clear message without words much can be done . currently practicing reading comp. type Q with film a week #eltchat
mattellman 9:18 PM @mattellman Great story though :) #ELTchat
Wiktor_K 9:18 PM @mattellman Aww, Mark and Allie were cute though. But I'm with you on the quality thing :) #eltchat
elawassell 9:18 PM What sort of activities do you do after watching the video? #ELTchat
SueAnnan 9:18 PM @Marisa_C It's a childrens tv program about a naughty little penguin. They only use intonation to communicate #ELTchat
mattellman 9:18 PM @naomishema True, but you do if it is to be a replacement for CD listening tasks #ELTchat
sandymillin 9:18 PM @MarjorieRosenbe I really like the DVDs/podcasts that come with the Speakout series, with clips from BBC and interviews w/ real ppl #eltchat
Shaunwilden 9:19 PM RT @Shaunwilden: @Marisa_C @sandymillin here you go marisa http://t.co/7XuF3BNf5l #eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 9:19 PM RT @elawassell: RT @MarjorieRosenbe: http://t.co/T1zU8LlnD5 Heres one link. <-I've seen it! Brilliant!
mattellman 9:19 PM @Marisa_C Absolutely! But so inefficient for stds to watch an entire film and come away with only a few lexical items #ELTchat
Marisa_C 9:19 PM @SueAnnan oh i see #eltchat sounded a bit exaggerated tho
teacherphili 9:20 PM @Shaunwilden @Marisa_C Now I'm watching Pingu, not taking part in chat #eltchat
mattellman 9:20 PM @Wiktor_K Yeah, I can't help feeling that a Hollywood budget would have made it a better teaching tool! #ELTchat
Marisa_C 9:20 PM I guess kiddies would love pingu and can put words to the conversation too ??#ELtchat
elawassell 9:20 PM I did a debate based on fragments of Panorama - topic: computer games - good or bad for your health. #ELTchat
teacherphili 9:21 PM Prediction: What will happen to the pancake? #pingu #eltchat
mattellman 9:21 PM RT @kierandonaghy: @mattellman Yes, students normally haven't seen the short films &there's a real wow factor when you show them #eltchat
SueAnnan 9:21 PM @Marisa_C  and CertTESOL trainees :-)  #ELTchat
Marisa_C 9:21 PM I tend to save bits with potential on pinterest - #eltchat
mattellman 9:21 PM RT @Marisa_C: I guess kiddies would love pingu and can put words to the conversation too ??#ELtchat
kierandonaghy 9:21 PM @mattellman Yes, students normally haven't seen the short films &there's a real wow factor when you show them #eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 9:22 PM On PEO activities pre teach vocab & phrases, use prediction ideas because videos are authentic. # eltchat
Shaunwilden 9:22 PM @naomishema in many ways a silent film leads itself to doing more with it i would imagine #eltchat
Wiktor_K 9:22 PM Used ads for translator training classes - 60sec of max impact language. My fave: http://t.co/mJ0ZqDkz7i #eltchat
naomishema 9:22 PM Glad 2 hear Keiran say likes silent films 2, was afraid it was  my background as T of Deaf that got me using them with hearing SS #eltchat
Marisa_C 9:22 PM @SueAnnan ha ha #eltchat can visualise you and them
naomishema 9:23 PM @Shaunwilden I now have 5 different activities for
leoselivan 9:23 PM RT @elawassell: What sort of activities do you do after watching the video? #ELTchat >where do I begin? :) there's so much you can do
Marisa_C 9:23 PM @naomishema silent movies great for st production - e.g. pigeon impossible is awesome! #eltchat
cherrymp 9:23 PM CLELE JOURNAL Open Access – children´s literature in English language education http://t.co/z88yktxNHj #eltchat #eltindia #iatefl #tesol
Marisa_C 9:24 PM I don't think we're talking abt a different set of  techniques here - a T who can plan a good listening lesson can do same w video #eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 9:25 PM @sandymillin will have to take a look. Thanks.:-) #eltchat
kierandonaghy 9:25 PM @naomishema I use almost exclusively silent short films. You can concentrate on students' output through speaking #eltchat
Shaunwilden 9:25 PM @naomishema what a great clip #eltchat
naomishema 9:25 PM @Marisa_C Will check out pigeoen impossible - didn't know  that one! #eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 9:25 PM I used to watch Supersize this with nutrition sts. Gave them questions to answer and stopped at times while watching. #eltchat
naomishema 9:26 PM RT @Shaunwilden: @naomishema what a great clip #eltchat never fails to move ss, works with different goals!
Shaunwilden 9:26 PM RT @Wiktor_K: @Marisa_C Not sure abt same techniques. Body lg? Gestures / pragmatics? More to be read from image, imho #eltchat
LizziePinard 9:26 PM RT @Marisa_C: Here is pinboard for interesting texts =- some of them videos #ELTchat http://t.co/LmOYNWIya4
Marisa_C 9:26 PM Here is pinboard for interesting texts =- some of them videos #ELTchat http://t.co/LmOYNWIya4
sandymillin 9:26 PM @Marisa_C Another good one for kids (and adults) is Bernard - 3-4 minute funny stories with no dialogue http://t.co/1pGCdddQBd #eltchat
naomishema 9:26 PM RT @kierandonaghy: I use almost exclusively silent short films. You can concentrate on students' output through speaking #eltchat > I know!

Shaunwilden 9:27 PM @naomishema yes i bet it works a treat, I couldn't wait to find out what she had written #eltchat
teacherphili 9:27 PM RT @leoselivan: @kierandonaghy @naomishema how very #Dogme of you Kieran! :) #eltchat  oops! I used the D-word cc @elawassell

Marisa_C 9:27 PM @Wiktor_K sure - but apart from blank screen, freeze frame and image without sound all other techniques same #eltchat
leoselivan 9:27 PM @kierandonaghy @naomishema how very #Dogme of you Kieran! :) #eltchat  oops! I used the D-word cc @elawassell
Shaunwilden 9:28 PM RT @kierandonaghy: @Shaunwilden @naomishema In short films there are loads of possibilities as you focus on  story & visuals not just the l‚Ķ
kierandonaghy 9:28 PM @Shaunwilden @naomishema In short films there are loads of possibilities as you focus on  story & visuals not just the language #eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 9:28 PM Great technique: is show 1/2 class picture & other 1/2 hears dialogue. Each try to fill in missing info. Then discuss & then watch. #eltchat
Marisa_C 9:28 PM @sandymillin oh that's nice! #Eltchat
Marisa_C 9:29 PM Also a nice idea to screen capture some video frames for prediction #eltchat
SueAnnan 9:29 PM @Shaunwilden @naomishema  I've used that too. It brings out some incredible language topics in the classroom #ELTChat
Marisa_C 9:30 PM Our topic does not specify whether video to be authentic - our conversation drifiting that way tho - what abt student videos #Eltchat
cioccas 9:30 PM TROPFEST is good source for short films: http://t.co/j5tvKsIvKv - check out the YouTube channels  #ELTchat
teacherphili 9:30 PM @Marisa_C get Sts to create or recreate story from the still frames, yes #eltchat
Wiktor_K 9:30 PM Short vids are perfect excuse for "bring your own device" lessons - groups of ss working through vids on tablets / smartphones #eltchat
kierandonaghy 9:30 PM Best site for finding quality short films is Vimeo Staff Picks http://t.co/teaBKLB25v #eltchat
leoselivan 9:30 PM @Marisa_C I often start with freeze frame #eltchat
naomishema 9:31 PM RT @kierandonaghy: @Shaunwilden @naomishema In short films there are loads of possibilities as you focus on  story & visuals not just the l‚Ķ
Marisa_C 9:31 PM RT @ALiCe__M: @Marisa_C @SueAnnan I suppose you all know Shaun the sheep ? http://t.co/ksKDITlmmU #eltchat > Yay!
Shaunwilden 9:31 PM @Wiktor_K and having recently discovered the ibolt app its now easy for sts to download vids onto they tablets too #eltchat
naomishema 9:31 PM all HOTS skills fit into this one learned from Kieran: http://t.co/mTRxzysffA #eltchat
Marisa_C 9:31 PM @fedeanna1 hello and welcome to #eltchat
ALiCe__M 9:31 PM @Marisa_C @SueAnnan I suppose you all know Shaun the sheep ? http://t.co/bTZnNPaNRU #eltchat

elawassell 9:31 PM RT @Marisa_C: Also a nice idea to screen capture some video frames for prediction #eltchat
mattellman 9:32 PM @Marisa_C We often have stds write their own texts as a reaction to reading/listening, making a video seems just as valid! #eltchat
naomishema 9:32 PM @Marisa_C @ALiCe__M @SueAnnan never met the sheep! Thanks for the intro! #eltchat
sandymillin 9:32 PM @Marisa_C Just made a video with my students, which will be on my blog as soon as they approve it! #eltchat
SueAnnan 9:32 PM @Marisa_C Sometimes make videos of students doing roleplays/ presentations and then critique #ELTchat or even colleagues teaching
Shaunwilden 9:32 PM @Marisa_C @ALiCe__M @SueAnnan Noooo dont mention that #eltchat
sandymillin 9:32 PM Do you count TED as short films too? I used 'Try sth new for 30 days' as one station in Motivation Stations http://t.co/ptnLpvoQC6 #eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 9:32 PM RT @Marisa_C: Also a nice idea to screen capture some video frames for prediction #eltchat

sandymillin 9:33 PM @naomishema You'll have to blog about HOTS skills at some point :) I know they're higher order, but not sure what's included! #eltchat
naomishema 9:33 PM RT @Marisa_C: @sandymillin TED talks great but i would use them like books do bits in class then assign the rest #eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 9:33 PM RT @sandymillin: Do you count TED as short films too? I used 'Try sth new for 30 days' as one station in Motivation Stations http://t.co/pt…

teacherphili 9:33 PM @Marisa_C do you mean getting Sts to make videos?  cause I've done that - mostly making adverts #eltchat
