Mysteries of Vernacular is site that will eventually display many of the kinds of videos that are displayed below. They’re generally not going to be accessible to many English Language Learners. However, they could be nice models for students to see creative ways to define a word. There are plenty of flashcard sites where they can create simple “authentic” materials for others to view, and sites like VocabAhead that invite them to upload their own videos to teach…vocabulary. The “Vernacular” videos could just help them get their creative juices going.
I’ll be adding this info to The Best Places Where Students Can Create Online Learning/Teaching Objects For An “Authentic Audience.”
Thanks to Open Culture for the tip.
