Using Vine in the ESL Classroom
By Traveling Teachers - Wayne State University
Presentation by Lynn, Roger and Sam
Sam brought up the app called Vine. We discussed the app which is a social media service where people can create six second videos using a mobile device and share the videos publicly or privately. Vine users can "follow" other users. Users can also "like", "revine" and post comments about the Vines they watch. Vine is similar to Twitter and Instagram, two popular social media apps.
Vine is easy to use and because videos incorporate visuals and sound it makes for a powerful tool to help students learn a new language.
