Music Videos to Inspire Writing


Mr P’s ICT Blog – iPads in the Classroom has some absolutely brilliant ideas for using iPads in interesting and unusual ways to inspire children to write.

My personal favourite is the use of music videos from popular artists (1 Direction, PSY) without the audio as stimulus.   Student are then asked to write a story about the video clip.

N.B – You would have to be very careful that you have watched the video clip in full to make sure that it is appropriate for student viewing.

The use of silent video clips and YouTube clips on iPads as stimulus for writing would be endless.

Yours in ICT
