All the following student video and poster projects are a direct result of the last two episodes of our school’s YouTube series, both of which exhibited the use of the Adobe Spark Video application and its potential in visualising students’ written speech.
Thus, learners of all levels have been able to base their creativity on a variety of topics that have been presented in our lessons with them, without any correction or interference by their teachers.
Therefore, liberty in language use is guaranteed, without any of the limitations tests or other more traditional activities usually pose. Language can now be seen in a freer, more creative and communicative context despite the occasional errors. Vocabulary has also been revised effectively through these projects, right before the school’s final exams.
The included recordings of the students’ voices in certain slides has been valuable pronunciation practice and has led to a greater awareness of the phonetics of the language and how accurate students’ enunciation is.
