All right, I have an OHP and now what? Part 1

Exactly and now what?

Surprisingly , a publishing company has given  the English Department an overhead projector and given that we have to almost beg for our own  children’s books I can only describe it as an act of utter generosity. I should maybe have to explain that although education  is compulsory in Spain until you’re 16 ,books are not free; not even kept at the school and handed from student to student . So you can only guess at how much publishing companies earn out of textbooks.

Right , so now I have an overhead projector but… I don’t have  an Internet connection. The thing is that I have a funny video that fits like a glove with my next lesson and I want to display it using the OHP.

That’s where this little tool comes very handy. It’s called Savevid and it allows you to download videos from Youtube, Vimeo, Metacafe and some other popular sites  to your computer or USB . The only thing you need to do is paste the url of the video you want to download, choose from 5 formats  the one that suits you best and play it on your computer.
