Station work - Overview - CD-ROMUploaded by Graham Stanley, British Council Barcelona (Spain)
This video clip shows an overview of a lower secondary English class with the learners involved in station work. While two groups of learners are working independently at their desks (one pair playing a pelmanism card game, the other pair writing), the pair at the IWB are given help from the teacher on how to use the CD-ROM on the IWB. They are playing a vocabulary matching game, used for revision purposes.

"I chose this clip because it gives an overview of the class and of the station work. Using the IWB in this way, with the learners changing to a different activity every ten minutes or so, means that the learners at the board are engaged with the activity and each learner gets to use the pen."
"The learners in the class are all very keen to get up and write on the board or use other functions of the IWB - station work lets each of them do this in ways that would not work as well with a whole-class activity."
"I like working in pairs and changing seats - it is more interesting for us."
"The best part was the game at the board. It was fun to do and better than doing the same in the book."
