The New York Times Learning Network has just launched its Eighth Annual 15-Second Vocabulary Video Contest.

It’s a fun and engaging learning activity, and submissions are due December 15th.

When they originally began the contest, they used a video one of my English Language Learner students created as a model. I often have my students use Instagram video for vocabulary improvement and for other types of formative assessments. You can see a ton of those examples at The Best Resources For Learning To Use The Video Apps “Vine” & Instagram.
