Speaker: OTAN, Outreach and Technical Assistance Network.

Barry Bakin: OK. So I'm Barry Bakin, and this is Video Discussion Prompts and Other Fun and Easy Activities for ESL Classes. I've been an instructional technology teacher advisor for the last several years for the Division of Adult and Career Education, for the Los Angeles Unified School District. And I've also been a subject matter expert for OTAN, for at least a decade. I don't exactly remember how long now.

So I've had an opportunity to use a lot of these projects and also work with teachers who use these projects, and I think you'll be happy. So hopefully, after this webinar, you'll be able to implement several projects or activities, including some video-based discussion prompts, and here's the key I hope, with little or no preparation. That's what I'm going for here.

So in any case, the project that I was trying to work with right now is a Get Acquainted Kahoot. I'm sure many of you are familiar with Kahoot. People have been presenting on Kahoots for a good number of years.

But basically, what I'm actually doing is building one right now. This is the Get Acquainted Kahoot, and I would do this at like within the first week of the semester. And what I would do is-- let me see if I can get my mouse going.

I would line up pretty much all of my students in a long line around the classroom, pose them against the whiteboard, and take this head shot. And then eventually, after they got to know each other a little bit-- but of course, nobody really knows everybody completely-- do a Kahoot in the first week to get students to see if they've started to learn everybody's name. So this had a couple of purposes. One to get to know each other, and two, it would introduce them to using Kahoots as a non-threatening way. So hopefully, we'll come back to that a little bit later.

But the first project that I think it's a nice good starter, everybody seems to love food. If do anything on social media, from Facebook to Instagram, people really are taking pictures of food. Whether they're at a restaurant, or they're at home and taking selfies of the food. And so there are a few projects that you can do with this. Excuse me for just a moment.

OK. Let's take a look at the next project or the first project. So it's not only just taking the pictures, which are a lot of fun, but then converting that to some sort of project that's appropriate for the class level and language level and technology level that you're working with. So in this project, not only are you taking a picture of the food, but maybe you're planning a full dinner.

And then you can add some EL Civics type skills or other skills and define a budget. And then maybe send them to the internet to find the ingredients, so they can figure out how much things are going to cost. And then either write about it, or do a PowerPoint.

So for example, this would have been-- this is a student response-- a little bit of writing, the ingredients of the shopping list with the cost, and that becomes a project. And then depending on what technology you have or whether you're in a face-to-face class or online class or hybrid class, presenting that dinner to the rest of the students. And then that is an easy segue into the next type of project, and basically, very, very flexible, pretty much any topic that you're discussing in class can easily be converted to a PowerPoint presentation or a discussion in an LMS. Again, it's mostly just inserting a picture your Word document, into your PowerPoint, into a Google slide, and then a little bit of text.

And then again, depending on your context, doing that presentation in a Zoom meeting or for the rest of the students or doing it in front of the class, but very, very flexible. And you as the teacher, you have lots of options, in terms of parameters. You can create a checklist of the types of things that you want to see in the presentation, whether it be certain grammatical structures or certain other things that you've been studying in class, not just the topic. And so this really great project, any time, dropping things into a PowerPoint presentation. If we have time later, and you're not really familiar with PowerPoint or with Google Slides, I can do a real brief how to make an easy presentation.

So here are also some other examples of that but with slightly different format. This would be like in LMS. So this is an actual project by one of my colleagues. And the idea here was, as you can see, this was back actually back at the beginning of the pandemic, and it was to encourage parents to set up a special home school place, a school place at home. So the parents are asked to take a picture, or pictures, of where their children are doing at at-home schoolwork or the Zoom meetings.

Again, another nice idea from this is people like to share what they're doing with their kids. They're real proud of that, and this was a really nice project. Some parents really did go out of their way to make the home learning setup very, very nice for their kids, to differentiate it from the couch, for example. It wasn't just the couch anymore. It's this study space. Same thing here, really, really proud of the projects that they did to help their kids in school or study online.

Along the same idea, this comes out of actually CTE. Again, a series of projects involving students taking pictures with their phone and doing a presentation or demonstrating that they understand the steps to a particular project or task. So in this particular case, the teacher has given them expectations, and then the students had to, just as they would in the class, where the teacher could see it, set it all up at home, take photos. And then submit the photos to demonstrate that they're aware of the proper sequencing of tasks for the CTE. But obviously, it's not just a CTE type project. Anybody in can adapt this in ESL or academic settings to demonstrate anything that requires a sequence of events.

So once you get those photos then a really great extra project that I'll go into a little bit more depth in is turning them into a scrambled PowerPoint puzzle. And so the idea is to take those same pictures that, perhaps, demonstrate the sequence and scramble them. So let me get out of this share and share something else.

OK, and let's see. Let's see. Toshiko, if you can hear me, can you check the chat? I sent you a message. OK, and let's also just do one more thing. OK, so let me start a new share.

Hopefully, you can still see that. Are you able to see the slide show that says steps for painting your nails? No.

Audience: It's a really large gray box that says Slide Show and Resume Slide Show.

Barry Bakin: OK. Hold on. Let me stop there and started again. Thank you for that. I think that's better. I see the green line.

Audience: Yes. You're good.

Barry Bakin: OK. So this was an actual student project, steps for painting your nails. Basically, what happens, if I do the slideshow, the student created this and quite a few pictures and with all the steps. So that's the project in itself. In this particular project, the student also recorded their voice, describing the steps.

But to turn this into a scrambled project, for which then can become a discussion prompt for other students in the class, this is what I would like. This is what I would do. Well, first of all, I'd probably get rid of the title slide, because we don't need to do that. OK? And then probably I would delete any of the recording.

So you can see the little icon here. You can click on that and delete it, if there are voices. Because sometimes they say, first, I'm going to do this. Second, I'm going to do this. Next, I'm going to do this. So we don't want to give the clues away. So we can delete all the sound, if there is any.

And then the point is we want to change the order and scramble the order. So the default display for PowerPoint, you're probably very familiar with it. Along the left side, you see all of the slides, and then the slide that's highlighted is displayed in large format in the center, and that's like your workspace.

But what I like to do for the scrambled case is, under View, you have some options, and one of the options is called Slide Sorter. OK? Slide Sorter, and what that does is it puts the slide in number order, just as they were arranged vertically. OK? But this you can drag around. So if I click on one, I can drag it and, just at random, change the order. I hope that's random. OK?

And then what you can do is go back to your presentation, or what you might want to do is you might want to save that. So you save it in the same place, and then just call it Scrambled. Painting your nails, scrambled. So now, it's not in order.

So let me just enlarge it just a little bit, and I want to open it up to the group. You can unmute your mics, and then try to describe what you think would be the first step. So you can, if somebody has an idea, unmute yourself and give a description of what you see and which slide you think may be first. And oftentimes, there really isn't a wrong answer. It could just be-- and that's the basis for a discussion itself.

Audience: Maybe slide 8 is the first slide, because they have all the nail polish out, and they're going to choose the color that they want.

Barry Bakin: OK. That sounds legit to me. So working with the group, I move that into position,

Audience: It looks like slide 9 is the last slide.

Barry Bakin: OK. That makes sense to me. Why do you suggest that?

Audience: Well, it looks like she has 10 painted nails in slide 9. So that looks like it's the last slide to me. Of course, number 6-- oh, yeah.

Barry Bakin: Go ahead.

Audience: No. Never mind.

Barry Bakin: OK. So and then as the teacher, of course, you can establish a conversation with the students, asking for reasoning, et cetera, et cetera. Let me go back to another possible way that this could be useful. You go back to your normal, one of the things sometimes that I do with this-- get rid of that little-- I make the picture just a little bit smaller. All right, and then I'll insert a little text box at the top with a letter.

So depending on what-- and also, you could probably get rid of any of the extra background stuff. So you move that up at the top, so that way, what happens, you do that when it's in the initial View, Slide Sorter, so that way there's letters. So that if it's too hard to differentiate between a particular slide, it's easy enough to say, oh, let's put slide A at the end. Let's put slide B next, slide C next.

And then of course, so you can do this as a group activity with the whole class, where everybody's speaking, everybody's participating. But you can also save that individually and then distribute it. And then the students who get it, have to put it into the order individually. Save it with their name on it, and then turn it in as, OK, I think this is the correct order.

So this is really nice. Again, in ESL classes, I use this to talk about adverbs of sequence, but CTE people, or really anybody, can use it to demonstrate knowledge of a particular task. Any questions on that? Oh, OK. I see in the chat, can you do this in Google Slides? Basically, yes.

I can't demonstrate that at the moment, but yeah. Oh, my colleague Natalie is saying, yes, it's called Grid View. Natalie, I sent you a text message, by the way. Oh, yes, great. OK. OK. Any questions about this particular task or activity?

OK. I don't hear anybody, so we'll go on. Hold on for just a moment. Let me stop the share. OK. Let's get back to the presentation. Let's start a new share.

OK. So we're not quite ready for that. OK. So the next activity, and this would be something that I like to establish at the beginning of any semester, I called it Find English and Real Life Treasure Hunt. And I made it known from the beginning of the semester that it was really great if students could bring in examples of things that we talk about in class.

OK, and so this would just-- it didn't happen all the time, but it would happen frequently enough. So in this particular case, we were, as you can see from the slide, we were talking about contractions, and I was going through the I am not and discussing a little bit the difference between academic English and other non-standard forms of English. And the next thing a student came and said, look, I found this in the newspaper, and so there it is. Some of you may be familiar with Boondocks, but he was able to connect what he was studying in class with something that he saw in real life.

And so I would encourage that, and of course, with phones nowadays, it's real easy to find public examples, and so these are a couple. We were doing passive voice in that particular class, and so these were things that the students found. It's very easy, just take a picture of it, and bring it into class.

OK. So the next project I call One Word Poems, and this is something that you can do in Publisher. Not everybody has Publisher anymore, but you can also do it in PowerPoint. And so let me stop the share here. Actually, first let me show you a couple of student examples.

As you can see, the idea is just to illustrate a word with the image. So this is an actual student example, very clear cut, very literal. Another one fairly literal, this being a team. But then also, you get ones that are a little less literal, a little bit more conceptual, the shaking of hands symbolizing friendship. So my question to you has anybody ever seen this before, being able to form words and then use pictures to illustrate the words?

OK. So let's see. Oh, by the way, let me take a quick look back into the chat. I'm getting are you willing to share your slide presentation with us? Yeah. I didn't actually make this one into a PDF yet, but if there's enough time at the end, I can. I'll convert it and drop it into the chat. OK? Thank you for those of you saying these are great ideas. That's always nice to hear.

OK. So most people have not heard of this idea. So what I'd like to do now is we'll share-- first, I'll do it in Publisher, if you still have Publisher. And then we'll do it in-- OK. Let me share. Then, we'll do it in PowerPoint, because I think more people have PowerPoint.

OK. Let me get to my Share button again, and find what I want to share. OK. Actually, let me put it on this other screen. I'm working with two screens, and that's why I'm turning my head to the side frequently.

OK. So how is that? This is a Publisher, and I already have one up on display. But let's just go ahead and start over. So this is called word art. So this is a Publisher page, and it's going to work very similar in PowerPoint.

But you insert, and then you look for the thing called Word Art. And you may not have ever seen this before. If you've been using Publisher or Word for a long time, it was there. They changed the way it works a little bit, but you can still do the same thing.

So you see these letter styles, and we'll go through a few of them. And you also see some things that already look like they've been formatted. So you could pick one of those right away, and then it just says Your Text Here. So let's say you want to talk about roses. OK, and you can make the size rather big, and say OK.

And so you can drag that into the center, and then just expand it, so it fills up your page. Of course, somewhere on the page, you do want to show your students about-- or have them put their name on it, put the date as a text box. That's simple enough.

OK. Then, you can go through, you can try a few different things. See what it looks like. OK? They have these shape effects as well or also change the shape. You get more things, and obviously, for this project, you want the letters to be as thick and as large as possible, so you can understand what the photo is.

So in any case, what do you do with this? How do you change it from a solid print to a photo? So over here under the Fill, for Publisher, this may look familiar to you. Most of us never really go beyond this part, where we change colors, something.

But if you keep on going down, it says Picture, and then you get that standard search. And hopefully, my internet here at school will work well. It's going a little bit slowly.

Oh, that doesn't look good. Let's try it again. If not, we'll do something else and look for a picture that I actually have on the computer.

Well, this is awkward. OK. So let's stop that for a moment, and I'll look for a-- instead of doing something that they have that screen that lets you choose things online, we'll do it with a picture, and then I'll find something. We'll say, I guess, work offline.

There we go. Let's do-- there we go. OK, but you saw what happened with Fill. So obviously, that's not roses anymore. So I have to go over to Edit Text, and we'll say lunch.

OK. So again, basically, all you're doing is matching the word with the photo behind OK, and you can by clicking on it and doing the format, you can say, well, maybe that one looks better. No, not really. How about that one? OK? That's pretty good.

Another thing you may want to experiment with, they have this one little thing called Spacing. And Loose means there's more space and less letter. So you probably would want very tight, and you get more of the picture.

So that's with Publisher, and I can do that again. But let me go back, and let's try it now in PowerPoint. And let me share one more time. And PowerPoint is very similar,

Same general idea. Actually, let me see if I can drag this over to my other screen, if it will drag nicely. Not really. OK. Let me stop the share and drag it first and then share again.

OK. So same type of idea in a PowerPoint slide, but more people have PowerPoint than Publisher. So again, it's the same type of thing. We want to insert and there it is, Word Art. Pick the letter.

OK. We'll do the sunflowers. So it's a slightly different type of thing. You can-- let me get my mouse back. OK. Drag it as large as we can, and then you have Text Fill. And there's your picture, and maybe this time it will work.

Let's do sunflowers. OK. That seems to be working a lot better at the moment. You select it and insert it, and there it is. OK? Now, so this acts a little bit differently.

In Publisher, if you change the size, the whole letters change. In this case, it doesn't quite work that way. So back at the Home screen, there's a couple of ways. You can just choose a huge number, make it a little bit larger, but I also found this works really well, increase font size, so it gets that much bigger. Maybe that might be a little bit too big for that. OK?

And then, you also have some other types of things, shape effects. So there's a few other little things that can happen to it. All right, and text effects, and this is the one where, all of a sudden, you see this transform. And so you have some different styles now.

And so you just want to encourage your students to find the one that illustrates-- gets the image out there the best possible way, and there you go. So again, in PowerPoint, you have Text Fill and Picture. OK? You also have, back at that Home tab, you still have the sizing, the character spacing. So it gave it a little bit more-- less letter to more letter. OK?

So any questions about that? Let me get back to the chat, see what's happening. Natalie, what do you think? Somebody is asking, anyone know if this is possible in Google Slides? I think it is, but Natalie is my local Google Slides expert on campus.

What do you think? Are you checking? OK. I'm pretty sure it is. If we have time at the end, we can open up Google Slides and look for it.

There's a question. Do you have tips on how to explain all these steps to lower level ESL students? Again, everybody's teaching situation is different. Repetition, a lot of repetition, demonstrating the steps, and if you're in a live, person-to-person class, demonstrating the steps repeatedly is helpful. Just a moment. That's all I can say, and again just repetition.

So and Chris is asking, do the students create their own slides? Yes. In this particular case, that's the idea of the project. And it's just, again, it's just I call it a one-word poem, a way to express themselves with a little bit of creativity with the vocabulary that they know.

OK. So let me stop the share, and we can move on to the next thing. Did that work? Let's see. You see this website called MakeBeliefsComix.com? Anybody? Did I do that right?

Audience: Yes. We can see it.

Barry Bakin: OK, great. So along the same lines, this is a really, really excellent website. Is there anybody who's heard of it? Bill Zimmerman started this many, many years ago for ESL teachers, and it's really grown over the years. Anybody? Has anybody heard of it? OK. We have one person.

OK. So there are many, many, many, many things that can be done with this website, but the one that I like to talk about most is this Create Comics. So I'll stop the share, and we'll do it live. Let's see. Want to make sure that we're in the right location.

All right, and let me share the screen, now that everything is lined up. So it's a pretty intuitive website. You do have to create a free account. It just increases a little bit of the security. You can just use your typical sign in with Google or use an email. It's really very, very minimal.

But the default is this three-panel comic strip. You can add more panels, if you want. And again, you demonstrate this to your students, just like I'm demonstrating to you. You show them let me that you have some tools here and then characters here, and this is a whole other type of prompt.

But basically, we're going to focus on this one, Characters and the Tools. And so the first is highlighted. The first panel is highlighted. You do have to name your comic.

So I'm going to call this TDLS 2022, and you do need a name. OK? And let's just take a look at some of the characters. So hopefully, you can all see that. So lots of different fantasy or more realistic characters, quite a bit of options.

And so, basically, what you do is you pick a character. Then, you have a few different poses that are possible. And when you select the character, then it appears in the panel, and this is where you can start using the tools.

So the first one is Move. It's the default. So you can just move it anywhere, move your character around. This one is Scale, which when you click on it, you get this little thing. You can make the character larger or smaller.

When you have more than one item in the panel, you have to Bring to Front. Flip, you select the tool, and then you click on the character, and it just flips. It that's exactly what it does.

This is nice. This is new. For those of you who haven't seen this, or haven't seen this for a while, you can now record audio. And then finally, if you're really not happy with something, you can delete that one particular item.

So once you have a character, then I use the Back button, and now we're going to get to the talk balloons. OK? So for example, you have some things. Same type of thing, you select the one you want. You can move it, and then you click just to write.

Now, in this particular case, I didn't have enough room. So I have a choice. I can go back and get a slightly larger presentation. OK. I'm sorry. a slightly larger speech balloon. Maybe, I'll do that.

So I want to delete that one. We'll get a slightly larger one. OK. If that's all you want in that panel, then you click on the next panel, get a new character, go back, find another character. OK. Move it around. Then, go back, get your speech balloon. You have different styles again. Et cetera, et cetera.

To do the audio, you would click on the audio and record the voice. Now, let's say those are the only two I want. So I can click on that, and I'll subtract one. Are you sure? Yeah.

OK. So now that you've got it and maybe you've added a speech to it, you want to save it. OK, and then you want to figure out how you're going to distribute it. So you basically have three choices, print, share, or email.

So if you're connected to a printer, you have a Print button. You can share it to all sorts of-- directly to Facebook or Twitter, if you want. But also you can email it to yourself, or email it to your teacher, by filling out the little form and then emailing it.

So this is the sender's email, and then this is who you're going to send it to. So in this case, I'm going to send it to myself. So at that point, then you can create a new comic or go back and edit it.

Like for example, they turn it into you, and you notice that there's a grammatical error or spelling error. They can come back and edit it. And where they find it is View All Saved Comics, and so then you see a list of the saved comics. And I really encourage you to look at some of these other things that he has. It's just really, really packed full of what he calls starters.

And so you can see that, for example, these are like preformatted prompts that you could have your students pick and then some of the work has already been done for them. Let's check the-- and yes, if you can copy from one frame to another, I'm not really sure. I haven't done that for a while. OK. So let's get back to-- let's see how we're doing for time. OK. That's the wrong one.

What I want to do is, briefly, do you remember that Kahoot game? Real quickly, let's see what it may be like in class. OK? So if you have your mobile device, go ahead, and we're going to go to kahoot.it, for those of you that know Kahoot. Let me get to the game. Where did I put it?

So I'm going to share the Kahoot game for a moment, and let me share this. All right. Are you seeing the game pin?

Audience: No. We just see you.

Barry Bakin: Just see me. Maybe, I didn't actually start sharing. Thank you for that.

[music playing]

How about now?

Audience: Yes. Now we see it.

Barry Bakin: OK. So for those of you who have never played the hood, it's a fun game. You have to go to www.kahoot.it. I see some people are already popping in.

OK, and you enter in the numbers 668-9302, and then it will ask you to type your name. And it looks like we've got 11 people so far. We've got about 36 participants in the webinar. So we'll wait a little bit, give people more time to join.

And this workshop was slated to go for 60 minutes, but we haven't gotten to any of the videos, activities yet, which I think really are the ice cream of this webinar. So I'm fully prepared to go a little bit longer. I hope you'll stick with me.

So we've got about 20 people playing, 21. Are there more who wish to join, or should I go ahead and start the game? If you don't mind, give me some feedback. Go ahead and start, or wait a few more moments?

Audience: I think you're probably good, Barry.

Barry Bakin: OK. Thank you for that. OK. So let's go ahead and start. So this is The Name Game, hopefully, since you've been looking at the chat for a while, or you've been looking at the webinar.

So on your mobile device, select the name of this person. And for those of you who've never played Kahoot, on the left, you see a timer. On the right, you see how many students have answered. And so pretty good that is Patricia, and it looks like most of you got that right.

So we'll do Next, and very good. So Angie's out in front. Very nice Angie, with our R. Rod coming in second, and Betsy in third place and EC and GM on the scoreboard as well. Here's the next question.

[music playing]

Counting down, 4, 3, 2, 1. All right. Most people answered. Ha. That's correct. That is me. Quite some time ago, but nevertheless, it is me.

Good job. OK. Let's see if that's changed the scoreboard. R. Rod moved up to first place. Congratulations, Angie. OK, EC, Betsy, and Sabina is now on the board.

[music playing]

Oh, sorry. You know what? We have to skip that one. I forgot to put the correct answer. My mistake. That's what I was trying to do at the beginning of the presentation. That's Julia. We'll do one more.

[music playing]

Very nice. Great job. So in any case, I'll stop it right now, but what do you think about that? For the first week of class doing something-- of course, you have to know how to use Kahoot. You have to be able to grab the student photos, but it's a really great activity for students. It introduces them to a Kahoot, and it helps them get to know each other. OK.

So the one comment, great, if we have student pics. So again, like I did right today, if you're online, I use the Zoom to take screenshots of people. I did ask them permission, before I did that.

If they're in person, just take their pictures. I used to just line everybody up in the room, and one after another, click, click, click, click. Over my many, many years of doing it, I only had a very few students who resisted, and that's OK.

OK. So let's get back to the presentation, and we'll do some of the video prompts. And then we can wrap it up. So let me share my screen, and we've got the presentation. Make sure I'm in the right spot.

OK. So again, I've got three separate clips, and the idea here in these clips is to be a prompt for discussion. So in this first one, I'll start the clip. Hopefully, let me know if you can hear the sound or not. You should be able to hear the sound. And the idea is to watch it, and then we're going to talk about what we think is going to happen next.

[music playing]

How's it sound, by the way? Can you hear it?

Audience: Yes

Barry Bakin: OK. OK. So unmute yourselves, and just let's just shout it. What do you think is going to happen next?

Audience: Maybe, he can't find his keys to get in the car.

Barry Bakin: OK.

Audience: Tornado.

Barry Bakin: You think there'll be a tornado? OK.

Audience: Somebody pulls away in the car.

Barry Bakin: Somebody pulls away. OK.

Audience: He rolls down the window.

Barry Bakin: Rolls down the window. OK. Somebody in the car rolls down the window. And by the way, you could do this in groups, as a little bit of a competition, if you wanted to. That often was fun, or have students come to the board, if you're in the class, or post it on the Jamboard. They're different suggestions

OK. So we have a few suggestions. So let me go to the next clip. Oops. Sorry. So let me do it that way.


Was that a surprise to anybody?

Audience: I wouldn't have guessed that.

Barry Bakin: Exactly. In all the years that I've done this, nobody's ever really guessed that. OK. Now, what do you think will happen next?

Audience: That animal will spit him back out, Barry, I think.

Barry Bakin: OK. So we have one person saying, spit him back out. OK. Any other suggestions?

Audience: Maybe the car is a submarine.

Barry Bakin: Maybe the car is a submarine. OK. I think you're all still stunned. OK. Well, let's take a look.

Audience: I think that--

Barry Bakin: Go ahead.

Audience: I think that creature will come for the car, for the cardboard car.

Barry Bakin: OK, and do what?

Audience: I don't know. Maybe, take it under the water with the jogger.

Barry Bakin: OK. Let's take a look. Get it? What do you think? Do you think that would be something that your students might enjoy doing? Nobody?

Oh, I see. In the chat, I see people are saying yes. OK, great. Oh, and also, there was-- yeah. I didn't have the chat open. I should keep the chat open.

Laura suggested that a UFO will come to save him. Yeah. But anyway, the name of this-- this was originally a commercial for Toyota-- the name of the clip is called Bait Car.

OK. Let's take a look at the next one. This one is really great around Thanksgiving. It doesn't have to be Thanksgiving turkey, but that's what I call it. Let's take a look. OK. What do you think will happen next?

Audience: The turkey will fall on the floor?

Barry Bakin: OK. That's one idea. Does anybody else have a different idea?

Audience: It goes through the drain.

Barry Bakin: It goes through the drain. OK. Thank you. All right. Well, let's go ahead and see.

Audience: Barry, what about that creature from the lake comes through the window, grabs it.

Barry Bakin: I like that. I like that, but no. Who said that? Who said it would fall on the floor?

Audience: I did, but it's more like she dropped it, more than it fell. Right?

Barry Bakin: Yeah. OK. I think, within linguistics, a fall on the floor is close enough, so congratulations on that. Let's take a look at the next clip. OK. What do you think will happen now?

Audience: It'll fall again.

Barry Bakin: OK we have a suggestion. It will fall again.

Audience: It'll go out the window.

Barry Bakin: OK.

[interposing voices]

Barry Bakin: Laura said, it will go through the window. That was in the text, but who said it out loud?

Audience: It'll fly away.

Barry Bakin: Fly away. OK.

Audience: The woman falls in the drain.

Barry Bakin: Let's see. Pretty good. If you said it would go out the window, but nobody quite guessed exactly the ending. All right. Here's the final one. Let's take a look.

[video playback]

[interposing voices]

- Just putting the feeder hose into the back of the machine. We're getting water directly from the lake over there.

- Is there a blanket or just like a warm--

- Hey, guys, guys, we've got company.

[end playback]

Barry Bakin: OK. So what will happen next?

Audience: They see a polar bear.

Barry Bakin: OK. That first clip did have a little bit of a clue. So let's just go ahead and watch it.

[video playback]

- We've got company. Let's just move away from--

- It's a bear.

- It's fine. Don't run.

- Walk over here. We're fine. You too, sir. Now, please.

- What's it doing?

- (Inaudible)

- Let's just give the bear a minute. He's going to move on. Just let the bear be.

[end playback]

Barry Bakin: OK. What's going to happen next?

Audience: The bear will jump on top of the washer.

Barry Bakin: OK.

Audience: Or try to crawl inside.

Barry Bakin: Try to crawl inside. OK.

Audience: It will put its bear suit into the machine.

Barry Bakin: Sabina says, it will put its bear suit into the machine.

Audience: And I think it will turn on the machine too, with the suit in the machine and the machine turns on.

Barry Bakin: OK. Well, let's take a look. Oh, and by the way, Evelyn is asking what's the turkey video called? I'd like to find it on YouTube.

Well, guess what, as your door prize, everybody, for coming to my session, I've actually saved all these videos, pre-cut, and I'm going to share them with you at the end. So you don't actually have to do any searching at all, and you don't have to do any editing, unless you don't like the way I've edited these. OK. Let's take a look.

[video playback]

- We've got company.

[end playback]

Barry Bakin: Oh, I'm sorry. I didn't go to the next one. There we go.

[video playback]

- Whoa.

Barry Bakin: I know somebody is really happy with themselves.

[end playback]

Great job. Boy, very few people ever guess that. OK. So now, what's going to happen?

Audience: He'll take off the second bear suit.

Barry Bakin: OK. Any other ideas?

Audience: At some point, that washing machine has to turn on, I would think.

Barry Bakin: OK. Let's take a look.

[video playback]

- Whoa.

[end playback]

Barry Bakin: Oh, I don't think I advanced. Hold on. Let me go to the next one. There we go.

[video playback]

- (Inaudible)

- Incredible.

[end playback]

Barry Bakin: All right. So congratulations to those of you who predicted that he'd put his bear suit into the machine and turn it on. Now, what's going to happen next?

Audience: I think he's going to take a photograph of the people.

Barry Bakin: Take a photograph of the people. The cameras right there. Right? Anybody else?

Audience: I think the people will take a photo with him, like a selfie with him.

Barry Bakin: OK that's a good suggestion. Yes. In the chat, Laura says, he's going to dance. OK. Let's take a look.

[video playback]

- Sitting in my chair. Sitting in my chair.

[end playback]

Barry Bakin: OK. What's going to happen next? You just want to wait and see? OK. Here we go.

[video playback]

- Sitting in my chair. Sitting in my chair.

[music playing]

[end playback]

Barry Bakin: All right. You guys, some of you had some great ideas, pretty close. What's going to happen next? Oh, and we had also, he's going to remove his shorts. That was a great guess.

Audience: He's going to open it, before the cycle is done.

Barry Bakin: OK. He's going to open it before the cycle is done. Let's go ahead and see what happens.

[video playback]

- That is insane. It got that clean on a cold cycle?

- Can we go back to work now, Mr. Ranger?

- The bear's now leaving. OK, gang. It's clear for us to go back.

- It's a polar bear.

- All we wanted to do is use the washing machine.

[end playback]

Barry Bakin: There you go. Congratulations for those of you who made it all the way through, a real creative commercial for Samsung washers. But anyway, what do you think? Do you think that this type of clip is something that would spark discussions or conversations in your classes?

Audience: Yes.

Barry Bakin: And especially maybe if you have a prize for correct answers. I think they're always a lot of fun. And what you can do, of course, is you can continue looking for commercials and things that have that little surprise ending. Most of the commercials try to aim for that. The very successful ones do that.

So I did want to mention a particular website that I actually learned at-- I think it was-- I'm not sure if it was last year's TDLS, or just in the meantime at a webinar. Melinda Holt introduced this to me. If you think about working with videos, this is a really-- and also audio-- this is a really great website, 123apps.com.

I just took a screenshot of the first few, but really simple to use audio tools and video tools. So like trimming off a longer video, really, really easy. So I'd like to encourage you to do that.

OK. So in the comments, Michelle says, John West salmon bear fight add is another good one. So I'll have to-- I'll jot that down myself (Inaudible) take a look at it, John West salmon. So are we saying the salmon is like fighting the bear? Is that what that means?

Audience: I think John West is a brand name for salmon, and their advertisement is known as the bear fight or bear versus man, not sure.

Barry Bakin: I see. OK. Well, we'll take a look for that. So as promised, I spent quite a bit of time trying to figure out how to get you all of these video clips without me having to upload every single one into the chat.

So what I've come up with is I uploaded all of the clips into a Google Drive that should be available to anyone with the link. OK? And then I took all of those links, and I made a Word document. OK? And so I'm sharing the Word document in the chat, and then hopefully-- and I also added this website in there as well to help you remember. But hopefully-- and I did double check this morning, just by going down in sequence to all the URLs, you should be able to download the different-- You should be able to download the different links.

So before we finish up, can somebody verify that the links in the Word document are working for you? And if not, I will-- I'm fairly confident they will work, because I did work hard on this to make sure that it would work for everybody, but I will put my email. That's good. OK. The first thing works, if that's any indication.

So great. Work for me. OK, fine. So I did put my email in there, in case there are any issues, or if you have further questions, you can email me.

Let me go to the slideshow and save as a PDF. And the truth is, I don't know if the videos will come through, when you save as a PDF. Maybe some of you who have more experience with that would know. But in any case, you actually don't really need the videos in the PowerPoint, because you have the videos individually. So let me see if I can get that now.

OK. So hold on just a moment. Let me see where I saved it. Current folder, OK, PowerPoint, PDF, try it again. OK. So I'm having a little bit of trouble finding where I just saved it is a PDF, but let me keep working on that.

There was a question from Angie, did I use the 123app to cut this video into clips? I did adjust it. Yes. That's the Trim one. Also, you will see that in that Word document, you have the whole, entire video. So if you want to cut it into different clips, you have the actual entire video to do that with.

And the 123apps is really easy. It's like a web-based interface. You just select the video you want to upload. You upload it, a really easy interface appears, and you just move a slider at the front and at the back to trim it. Then, you save that and download it, and it pops into your download folder as a note with the trim that you want. It's really quite easy.

OK. So let me figure out why it's not-- why I don't find the PDF. Maybe I'll just put it on the documents. It should be there.

Let me try and again. Start on my computer. Ah, there we go. OK. PDF, all right, OK. OK. So there you go. I was successful, and you should have the slide presentation as well.

So without further delay, we can start to wrap it up. There was a comment earlier about it originally scheduled for going until 2:30. This time slot was from 1:00 to 2:30, but if you look at the descriptions, presentations were of different lengths. So originally, I had thought to do this in 60 minutes, but that didn't really work out anyway. So I'm glad we had the extra time.

So if you do have a chance to use any of these ideas, you have my email. It's always great to get feedback on my ideas and see-- let me know how they work with your clients. So unless there are any further questions, I think that we can tell Patricia to wrap it up.
