Time: using powerpoint to play bingo to revise vocabulary for different numbersUploaded by Emily Hillier, Cardiff Metropolitan University (UK)
This video clip was taken from the context of a lesson learning to tell the time in Welsh. This video clip was from the first activity of the lesson whereby the learning objective was to revise the numbers in Welsh before practicing the time. The teacher had created PowerPoint slides that could be used on the IWB with a random selection of numbers. The whole class were given blank Bingo cards to fill in themselves and then were required to tick off the numbers on their cards if they matched the numbers presented on the IWB. One individual was selected to call out the numbers in Welsh at their own pace.

It was quite nice to get a child to the front to initiate the game because it showed a bit of assessment to see if she knew her numbers and it gave confidence to the other children who may not have been too clear on their numbers aswell.
It was very easy to set up as far as I did a PowerPoint and it was easily accessible to the children just for the children to flick on and off instead of writing the numbers on the board and rubbing them out. It was a game I prepared before so it was just in my memory bank so it was there just to grab so that was quite useful. It's obviously quite visual and it's a big board so they were able to see at the back.
It was a good, quick starter to get them using English to Welsh.
The children were involved by having their own bingo cards. They felt like they were involved in a game which was fun but hidden in there was the welsh vocabulary which they needed. They were learning while they were playing quite a fun game.
It was like better to learn it than a worksheet ... because everybody can see it and then it's better.
It's more exciting to watch what to do on the IWB than just like on a normal [whiteboard] and [our teacher] lets people go up and use it.
