Animate your students with video projects

Here is an interesting post from Geraldine explaining and justifying tools like Powtoon in an English language classroom. According to her, video projects bring more variety, help students see the outcome of their work, give opportunities for revision and generally cater for their interests (at least if we’re talking about teens). I haven’t tried anything like this myself (my video ‘projects’ were usually based on recording a dialogue with My Talking Tom), but it seems that the activity is worth the time invested, provided the teacher thinks through all the stages and makes the process clear to the students. Geraldine’s post is very practical and can help you do just that.
