Students as Filmmakers: Editing Tools in the Foreign Language Classroom


This working group will discuss how instructors currently use film in the foreign language classroom, and will focus on ways that students can engage more creatively with film, using editing software. We will discuss film editing tools, such as iMovie, that students can use to create video essays, narrate video clips in the target language, and create short videos of their own. The goal of the working group will be to create lesson plans and materials that can be incorporated into the participants’ language courses.
