Title: Teaching an Original Video-Based Lesson in an EFL Classroom.
The use of video in the EFL language classroom has a foremost place in the context of interactive multimedia. Through thoughtful planning, video instruction can promote interactive and active learning, and it is imperative for teachers to supply support material to encourage positive viewing by their learners. On condition that techniques for promoting active viewing are exploited, video based lessons can stimulate conversation and discussion, and help set up situations for classroom activities.
