It is important to use videos in class but with Vizia you can create interesting video-based comprehensions, give homework to your students and in ELT it is the perfect tool for comprehension. It is the perfect tool also for assessment in different subjects. You can have quizzes and open questions. Once you have chosen your video you can edit it and then share the link with the task or embed it.
It is a free tool and you can use it for flipped classrooms too.You just need an account and then you can start.
Here is the tutorial which I found online:
This is the tutorial in Italian for Italian learners and teachers:
Last year I had already mentioned the tool in a post which I had written : http://gettingdigitalizedinlifeandwork.blogspot.it/2016/07/flipped-classroom.html
Here is a video which I have used for presenting the issue of Migration to Australia: the video is from the Youtube and it can be embedded: I also used the link for my padlet presentation where the topic was Australia.
You can create open questions and then check them - the tool can be also useful for testing , you just need to rely on a good internet connection and an ICT lab or tablets.
The second video is about a famous interview - the idea is to work on the news while students watch real videos with interviews with famous people . Internet can really change our way of working.
Vizia can also be useful for creating CLIL lessons and any other document based on video when we want to make lessons based on different school subjects and in projects.
We hope it will remain free.
