Graspr is the latest site where users can upload “how-to” or “instructional” videos to do just about anything.  I’ve posted about several of these sites twice in the past few months.

One of the features, though, that makes Graspr a little different from the others is the ability for the viewer to write online notes about what they see — while they’re watching.

I help my students learn reading strategies (asking questions, making connections, etc.) so they can become better…readers.

We also talk in class about how we can become better listeners by using these same kind of strategies while in conversations and while watching movies.

This site is an interesting, and challenging, way for English Language Learners to try this out.

I’ve placed the link on my Examples of Student Work page under Student Videos
