Describe what went well from your (as a teacher) perspective The students learnt the names of wild animals and types in English.
Describe what was difficult/what didn’t go so well from your perspective? Not all the students watched the video. So, when they came to the class, I had to repeat.
What were the benefits for students? Think about students’ motivation, responsibility, interest etc based on student surveys, observations It was interesting for the students to watch the video at home. Most of the students were responsible for watching the video. They liked doing something related to ICT. They could repeat and watch the video again and again.
What was difficult of using the method from the students’ perspective? I think nothing was difficult because all the materials were ready for them. They just watched the video.
