•How to use it
Before watching the video the teacher tells students the topic of the video (the basics principles and types of light reflection and light absorption). Then s/he invites them to work in pairs and write down the words/expressions/key vocabulary they think will come up in the video. S/he tells them to compare their words with another partner and add to their list. Then s/he will ask all groups to collect all their words finalize a common list of words related to the topic. Students will watch the video and share 2(3)things that impressed them about what they have watched. In pairs, the teacher provides them with TRUE/FALSE statements. Students check their answers in pairs and in plenary and watch the video again if there are any problems. Students go through their initial word lists again, underline the words they have heard in the video and share their findings in pairs and in plenary; the teacher checks understanding and asks students to provide their mother tongue version of the words. Students share with a partner three new things they have learnt from the video.
Follow up: Students are asked to find their own resources on the topic and share them with their peers next class they meet.
Students who have poor knowledge of English can have problems with understanding the content.
Strengths: The resource provides interesting collaborative learning. The video is visually appealing to students as it provides suggestive images illustrating the topic. Scientific reliability: This web site is scientifically reliable and can be recommended to students; it is well-organised and accessible. The resources can be used as support for a range of learning activities (self- study, project work, collaborative learning).
