On Thursday afternoon 24 November at 3:30pm we held a webinar entitled, ‘‘ABC learning – Create spelling videos using PowerPoint’. Our speaker was Mochudu Machaba, a South African educator presently teaching Grade 5 and 6 Social Sciences, English and Lifeskills at Ngwanamago Primary Limpopo Province.
The webinar description
In this webinar, Mochudu showed us how learners can create vocabulary content using PowerPoint. She demonstrated how learners can design PowerPoint videos to revise their language structure and help them improve their vocabulary. Visuals improve their memory to recall what they have learned and also help them understand words better by relating the vocabulary to pictures. In this lesson learners come up with words and pictures to create their own spelling words. Learners record themselves saying words and later come up with sentences. In this way learners’ confidence is enhanced because they create their own content. They can use either Sepedi or English. They then rehearse what they have created and do creative writing as well.
