Poster Session

What it means to be a YouTuber and its benefits in a University setting

This presentation will demonstrate how YouTube will benefit the educator in conveying information to the student. As an ESL instructor, my students are required to do final projects. Creating a YouTube video that can then be downloaded and used as a form of media to demonstrate how effectively they have learned the English language. The presentations demonstrate a beginning, a middle and an end of the benefits of a language acquisition class. The YouTube film inspires the students to be creative, confident and unique in their video creations.
