Bombay TV (week 10)

Introduction

This website certainly makes language teaching and learning more realistic and fun. We watch Bollywood movies for fun but NOW we can also use them as a teaching and learning tool!This technology is suitable for all language teachers and students at higher levels beyond the age 16 and above.The website is about creating subtitles in the target language for Bollywood movie clips. The idea of this website is to encourage students to learn language in context . Students can structure short sentences or a text using their target language based on a  specific topic or task. This website also allows students to practice spoken language through dialogue creations that suits the  body language, intonation and interaction patterns of the characters  in a movie.Students can then email their movies to their teacher or friends.

  18. students can also see the relation between body language and speaking in order to interpret the movie and create dialogues.
The disadvantages of us using this website are:
  1. not all the video clips are appropriate for students and it needs a lot of filtration
  2.  its requires computer facilities and not all classrooms are inserted with computers.
  3.  students may tend to use inappropriate language while doing a video.
Recommendation

Teachers can use this website as a warmer before starting their lesson. Teachers can also create a good example movie to provide a  specific context for students in using the language. Teachers can also use this website as students homework task since they can sent an email personally to their teachers. Teachers can also introduce the element of body language in understanding and interpreting language while speaking. On the other hand students can use this website to play with language as in learning the syntax,grammar,speech act and functions of language in a meaningful way.

http://www.keek.com/

* This is an alternative website for MailVU.

Introduction

This fantastic website certainly widens the space for language teaching and learning.This technology is suitable for all language teachers and students at lower levels and can also be used for language learning outside the classroom. This website upholds the same theory like MailVU whereby it brings in the idea of 'Connected' classroom.This means that the learning of the target language goes beyond the classroom connecting students with the outside world. Thus,this website initiate students to practice speaking in the target language apart from the classroom. It generates a connection between class activity and homework. This website allows English learning through Video Creation!.This website is a new social media network that focuses on microvideo sharing. It is called microvideo because teachers and students can create a mini video for 36 seconds using the webcam. Teachers and students can then  upload their videos and  share them with their friends or followers.It is the next companion to Twitter and Facebook!.
