The Moving Image: A History of Video in ELT

Friday, September 12, 2014 at 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm

Wollman Hall, Eugene Lang College 65 West 11th Street Room B500, New York, NY 10011

From the BBC’s crash course "Follow Me" in the 70s to the 90s concept of Active Viewing and today’s You Tube Generation, how has the role of video changed in the last 50 years? This personal journey will trace how the moving image has moved on, and analyze the part it may play in the classrooms of the future.

Presented by Ben Goldstein.
