Infusing online English lessons with creative video stories & original music videos.
WORKSHEET FOR LESSON 002: http://app5.websitetonight.com/projects2/9/6/9/5/2795969/uploads/LOE_002_Why_do_I_ride_key.docx
Ten video lessons & a featured album with original music written for each lesson...see a sample video below
Your help with this project gives me the opportunity to:
Create video lessons that are interesting, educational, funny, engaging, language content-rich, musical, visually appealing, unique.
Teach English through video shorts, stories and music to keep students engaged. Videos provide a visual context for the new language that is being presented in the lesson. For the teacher, the creativity that goes into each lesson is inspiring as I feel that creativity is at the heart of great teaching.
Revolutionize the way we teach and learn online. I am excited about leading online education in a new direction by embracing technology while using the power of storytelling to teach.
Share music that I have written for the educational setting, but never professionally recorded. (Songs are the focus of lessons which teach English grammar and vocabulary). This includes the stories and songs that I have created and learned over the last eight years of teaching in Pre-K, Kindergartens, Elementary Schools, Middle Schools, High Schools, in several different countries. Hit songs like: "Breakdown (in the copy machine)", "Let's Ride (Bicycles)", "The Lonely Gardener", "Do you like to float? (In a boat)".
Professionally record and produce new lessons and songs. (Sorry about the terrible audio in the video above, this is the reason for my Kickstarter campaign). Also, record original children's music that I wrote in 2006, including hit songs like "You Can Come to My House" and "School Bus School Bus".
Here is a lesson sample: (note: there are no downloads on this page.)
