#ELTchat Summary Wednesday 28 March 2018: Using Video in ELT

As the topic was using video, I thought it seemed a good idea to have a go at making an #ELTchat video-based summary  so… here it is.

Ideas on How to Use Video

I used Lumen5 to make the video below to summarise ideas mentioned in the chat on how to use video in the ELT classroom:

@naomishema described these two videos as her favourites in the video summary: A Love Story…In Milk and The Power of Words.

 Finally, @fionaljp mentioned using a video transcription tool called oTranscribe
