Creating Virtual TPRS/CI Videos – Tammy Ruijgrok

Creating virtual lessons for online learning can be challenging. Creating TPRS/CI virtual lessons can be even more exacting. This presentation will provide you with ideas and skills to create innovative, fun virtual lessons based on TPRS/CI. The lessons will be made using iMovie and a green screen app on the iPad.

TPRS/CI has changed the way I teach my students. After some initial hiccups getting started, I have successfully implemented many of the techniques in my classes. And then the pandemic began. Suddenly, I had to teach a foreign language to 4 to 7-year-olds in a virtual environment. I was determined to continue using the TPRS/CI methods that had proven so successful in my face-to-face teaching in the classroom. I also knew I wanted the lessons to be entertaining, just like the stories we created in the classroom. Using iMovie and a DoInk app for green screen, I started creating movies that the students could watch and interact with, similar to how they would in the classroom. This formula turned out to be a success. The students (and parents and siblings) were enthusiastic about the videos and eager to see what the next video would be. And they were learning Dutch while doing so!
