We have begun to apply the PowToon program in English lessons.
This program allows to create interactive spectacular presentations. This new and interesting way of presenting different grammar rules and a new vocabulary awoke great interest in students from 6th grade .
With live presentations where characters move and talk, text is as short as possible, the most boring learning material is perceived and memorized more easily.
With the PowToon presentation “How to report results of a survey” I presented the vocabulary related to the topic in an interesting way.
Students from 6th grade watched the presentation with great interest and easily did the exercises to practice the words and phrases on this topic.
The program can also be used by students for their presentations on given topics.
Once I’ve introduced students to the PowToon program, some of them tried immediately to make their own presentations.
