Students interview native speaker (TOKBOX)

One more time TOKBOX has proved to be a great tool.

My upper-intermediate students had just learned vocabulary related to education and I told them I knew a girl their age who studies in the States and we could ask her some questions about education in the US.

PROCEDURE:

  1. Pairs of students created a question they would like to ask Cara (the American girl). We had 6 questions.
  2. I used my tokbox account to record my students asking Cara their questions and sent her the video message via e-mail.
  3. Cara received the video message and replied using the same tool "Tokbox".
  4. I shared her video with my students via EDMODO ( a communication tool we use daily).
Watch the video where they ask the questions:

And this was Cara´s reply. The girl on the left is my daughter who is living in the US as an exchange student and Cara is her host sister.

Hi Ana,
My name is Derek and I'm a Educational Technology graduate student at San Diego State University. We are currently studying blog sites and I was very impressed by the tools that you have used with your students! They are very lucky to have a teacher that provides them opportunities to have a great learning experience!
