Creating Machinima for language Learning

Date and time for this presentation was Wednesday 5th of March at 12.00 CET



Title: Creating Machinima for Language Learning

Creating and filming their own scenarios encourage learners to fully engage in the learning process by collaborating and interacting, while practicing their language skills as well as their interpersonal skills. Machinima are very powerful in giving students the opportunity to keep evidence of their creations or activities, for example: reporting about a place visited in virtual worlds, giving a presentation, describing pictures or events, setting up an exhibition, building something [ a wall, a bike etc.] giving or taking interviews, telling a story etc.  They help learners and facilitators to analyse a session, revisit specific elements in a session and are an excellent source for reflection, error correction and language revision.
