Lights, Camera, Language

For the practice and enhancement of oral language skills on various levels, new digital video technology was introduced in an advanced German conversation class to create a German language news report. Students researched their topics on-line, interviewed speakers on camera, wrote and recorded their own narration, and digitized and edited their footage -- all in German. This web site presents a description and the results of the project. An excellent resource for people interested in the effective use of video in language learning.

Excellent as a project description and as a collection of examples to motivate students involved in similar projects. An update and a set of tips for instructors would be welcome additions.
