How images or videos can be used in ESL class-room/Digital story telling:
THE FIRST WELL SCREEN SHOTS


                                           
Pre-view:
Strong question:
  1. Have you ever imagine how the first well was created? if not think and write?(oral  presentation or one can write here)





  1. Look at the picture and write a story with them.
Watch this video:click here

During: we can do the following activities during the video presentation.
 1.       Freeze framing and prediction.
What would you do if you were in place of the king to solve the problem?

2. Silent viewing activity: Show the video with out audio ask them to predict
3. Sound on and vision off activity or Dubbing activity: Ask the students or trainee teachers to listen and draw a picture of what they listen

4. Repetition and role-play (write the conversation)
 

After viewing:
 1.      Reproduction activity: Ask the students or trainee teachers to re-tell the story in their own words.
 2.      Conducting discussions.

I would teach a story to my students using videos/captured images with the techniques mentioned above same strategies can also be followed to train teachers during in-service training .It would make the students/teachers listen ,read, write , speak and think to solve the problems during the activity.
