From above results, I found out that:
Teachers are positive about the use of video and photos in the classroom because
it stimulates classroom discussion. Video and photos reinforce lectures and
reading, help students to have a common base of knowledge. The movement, the
natural language and the story all combine to provide an enjoyable context for
learning. However, this learning requires great preparation from the teachers.
The main aims of using videos and photos during the English classes are to
motivate and help students to understand this language. Students who watched
video were able to provide more complete and complex explainations. The gaps
in knowledge base between boys and girls and between minority and majority
students were smaller and closer. Video and photos can help to improve the
students’ problem-solving skills. They can produce more sophisticated solutions.
Both teachers and students are eager to make video clips for their lessons in
spite of spending so much time and preparation.
Advantages of the video and photos:
Video can illustrate how thing works. It provides information in detail that text
can not. Video and photos can show real life examples and stimulate students’
discussions. Students listen to the teacher attentively. Students feel relax and
more confident when learning with video. Barners said that video could enhance
problem- based learning ( Barners, 1997).
Beside all above advantages, there are also some challenges.
There may be a lack of resources because the number and quality of videos that
ministry of education provide are not enough for teachers.Teachers may lack
equipment and required software. Not all teachers have a camcorder and are
good at technic.
VIII. Implications of the study
Every study should be applied to practice. The results of the study showed that
video and photos could be exploited as a supplementary method in teaching
English to the tenth grade students at Tran Phu High School.
Nonetheless, in order to fully exploit the approach, the following resources
should be taken into account.
1. The Teacher
The teacher should be wholeheartedly devoted to their job as he/she needs time,
enthusiasm and efforts to design lessons in accordance with the teaching
context, especially choosing and making video. For example, the teacher has to
spend a lot of time choosing and preparing suitable video for each lesson. You
can use programmes recorded from the TV in the country you’re in. or you can
use cartoons, soap operas or reality TV shows from the students’ country as they
will be able to tell you all about the characters and you can exploit the natural
information gap between you and them!
The use of Video is likely to create good opportunities for students to express
their feeling freely. This suggests that questions in this lesson should be
designed in a way that creates opportunities for the students to express their
The teachers need to have video ideas and prepare carefully before going to the
classroom. Each video only lasts from 5 to 8 minutes. Some following topics
may make the students atractive:
School events: music show, guest speakers, school plays and sports... These
events would make great videos for a classroom
Student projects: Let students create videos as special projects or to
demonstrate their mastery of a concept, then post the video on the screen to
show off the learning that’s going on in your classroom.
Teaching videos: There are many educational videos available online, which
can be used to supplement lesson plans. Add the videos to the blog so students
can easily find them and watch them.
