Ismail Firat ALTAY, Dalım Çiğdem Ünal

Abstract


In the twenty first century, technology has started to occupy much more place in the field of foreign language learning and teaching. Depending on widespread use of internet and technological devices, video use became more practical and easier in foreign language classes. This study aims to investigate the difference between classes without and with video use. In order to realize this, forth year candidate teachers from English and German Language Teaching programs have been observed. Depending on the three year longitudinal study, different aspects of video use have been investigated. Firstly, classes have been observed with no video use. Later same classes have been observed with video use. The video used has been left to candidates, so they can be teacher made, adapted or ready made. Both observations have been rated by two questionnaires. The results have been compared considering classes without and with video and the amount of video use within three years. For data analysis, SPSS has been used. Finally, results and pedagogical implications have been presented to the readers.
