What the hell is ‘multi-focused multimedia software’? Or are you looking for English-teaching software?
I don’t understand. When you say ‘multi-media’ what do you actually mean? Do you want packaged lesosns that you just have to follow, or do you want software you can use to prepare your own lessons with.
I use powerpoint sometimes, with imported word documents, pictures, web pages, and video files placed in the slides. You just put together your lesson plan and make sure you teach it in the order you’re displaying it.
What teaching material are you using? Who are your students? Class size? Ages? Ability range? For how long?
Interactive software to visually represent the voice patterns of students as they speak into the microphone? Try ‘My E.T.’
Video or audio clips? Media player or winamp work fine for me, unless they’re incorporated into powerpoint.
Displayed text? I have a colleague who just fires up ‘Word’ and uses it as his blackboard.
I’m sure there are online word games etc that can be projected onto a screen but I haven’t used any.
Good topic, this. Use of computers by teachers seems to be still in its infancy (as opposed to using teaching software with individual students) and I too would be interested to know how other people go about it.
