In this session participants will have the opportunity to learn about sites created for children learning English and implementing them in our ESL classes in the primary schools.

Traditional second or foreign language lessons for children in Europe focus mainly on language. Pupils use textbooks and the amount of time is often limited. Why not to use a tool that is already available at any time of the day and place in the world.

The kids learning videos are very encouraging and appealing to our younger learners, taking them on a journey with technology, colour, sound, towards learning new language, culture and subject skills. Sites can be used in class but also some tasks can be set as homework or given to students who were absent or simply wanted to do a little bit of revision at home, or simply wanting to do it for fun at home again.

In this session, I would like to share my experience and knowledge on using the learning videos for kids, by sharing the sites and ideas on using them with my audience.

This session will be 60 minutes long. It will be divided into three parts, an introductory part regarding the possibilities that learning videos for kids offer. Part two, also the longest, where we’re going to look a few examples of such learning videos and discuss their possibilities in terms of teaching an ESL class in the primary school. I would like to present my ideas and also listen to the ideas of the participants. The last part, the summary, would involve teachers in some discussion and sharing. All of the sites / links used in this session are available online, ready to be used immediately with children, so I believe that this will be of great value to those who come looking for some new ideas for their learners.
