Great Student Video Vocabulary Contest At NY Times Learning Network



Each year, The New York Times Learning Network invites students to create a fifteen second video using one of the 1,600 words the Network has featured in their posts.

They’ve just announced the opening of their 2017 contest. The deadline is February 28th.

I think it’s an excellent learning activity, particularly for English Language Learners. In fact, the Network used a video created by one of my students as a model when they began the first year of the contest.

You can see many examples at The Best Resources For Learning To Use The Video Apps “Vine” & Instagram.
