YouTube is an excellent tool to introduce or to review a lesson. Most important, I have noticed that students’ attention and retention increase since most of my students are visual and audio learners. A picture is worth more than a thousand words, but a video might go beyond that number. For ESL students, a video might help them an image and sound so they can have a better understanding of the concept. For instance, I have used songs from YouTube as a way for my students to practice pronunciation and to expose them to the American culture.
As mentioned on my Week 3 blog, ProProfs.com offers brain games, quiz builder, and flashcards that can be embedded on a website or blog. One of the features that I really like is that you can add pictures and Youtube videos to the quizes. Besides, it has an online tracking tool.
