Screen capture of the two videos

In these two videos, Massachusetts adult education teacher Joan Schottenfeld describes how she creates vocabulary videos with accompanying Google forms and how she posts them in her Google Classroom. She highlights what she does to encourage and enhance learner engagement, especially important since her students are watching and interacting with these videos at a time convenient to them, without direct teacher involvement.

These videos were created in June of 2021, so some of the "future" that Joan speaks of has come to pass. All of the how-to tips and strategies continue to be highly relevant.

A transcript for each video is posted below, as a PDF.
