USING STREAMING VIDEO WEBSITES (YOUTUBE) AS A TOOL FOR SELF AND PEER EVALUATION IN SECOND LANGUAGE LEARNING

S. MacIsaac

University of Southern California (UNITED STATES)
Foreign language writing classes have long incorporated peer review as a valuable method to improve students’ facility with error correction, self-editing and logical analysis. The advent of the internet-video streaming site YouTube has made it technologically feasible to easily and systematically incorporate peer review strategies into Oral Skills classes as well. This workshop will be divided into two parts: in the first half, participants will advance step-by-step through the process of creating a YouTube account for academic use. Participants will learn how to set up and manage contact lists, upload video, and control privacy settings so that student videos are not accessible to the general public. The second half of the workshop will focus on utilizing the uploaded videos as an evaluation tool. Participants will review worksheets to facilitate self and peer evaluation, and brainstorm other possible applications of the technology.

Learning Objectives:
Internet video streaming allows teachers to easily and systematically incorporate peer review into Oral Skills classes. In this session, participants will learn how to create a YouTube account for academic use, covering such areas as establishing contact lists, uploading video, controlling privacy settings, and utilizing self and peer evaluation worksheets.

Format:
An oral workshop format is preferable if the conference has access to an instructional computer lab; otherwise, the oral session will be a demonstration.
