Video Applications in English Language Teaching

Milestones in ELT

Milestones in ELT The British Council was established in 1934 and one of our main aims has always been to promote a wider knowledge of the English language. Over the years we have issued many important publications that have set the agenda for ELT professionals, often in partnership with other organisations and institutions. As part of our 75th anniversary celebrations, we re-launched a selection of these publications online, and more have now been added in connection with our 80th anniversary. Many of the messages and ideas are just as relevant today as they were when first published. We believe they are also useful historical sources through which colleagues can see how our profession has developed over the years. Video Applications in English Language Teaching This 1983 collection examines possible uses of video for language teaching, at the time this being still a recent innovation and a relatively unexplored area. Indeed, in his Preface Christopher Brumfit wonders if the medium will ‘follow the fate of language laboratories and distract teachers from a central concern for their relationship with students and the language which results from that relationship’. However, as he also notes, contributors to the volume seem aware of this danger and are anxious to ‘accommodate video within the mainstream of language teaching’. Different chapters offer state-of-the-art surveys of practice, more theoretical contributions which situate video use in relation to other media or in relation to spoken discourse in general (there are notable contributions by Dave and Jane Willis in these areas), and descriptions of specific classroom activities with video. There is a consistent concern throughout the collection with issues of copyright where video-recording of broadcast materials is concerned but an equally strong appreciation of the potential value of video when such problems can be overcome.
