Audio-Visual resources 4: Overhead Projector (OHP)

0 (0 Likes / 0 Dislikes)
Audio-visual resources 4 Overhead Projector (OHP) The Overhead Projector (OHP) is one of the most popular visual resource used in education and training. It is one of the few teaching aids that was actually invented for educational use and not adapted from a device intended for entertainment. Most schools have OHP projectors which are mainly used by EFL teachers for presentations and for conducting many learning activities with large classes. Although it is the most widely used, it is also the most abused. Some teachers continue to misuse the overhead projector even though they have used them for years. ADVANTAGES OF USING OHP IN YOUR CLASSES If you use an OHP you are effectively telling your students that your lesson has been well prepared and not something you thought of just before class. Your students can prepare visual stimuli themselves for presentations or class talks, or work together on separate strips of an OHT (transparency) to put together an article or story. You can photocopy a student’s work or a model composition onto an OHT and discuss its merits with your class. The OHP also accommodates different learning styles and multiple intelligences as you can use colour for the text or drawings. There is lots of material that can be used for expressive speaking activities, such as photos, cartoons, maps, charts and diagrams. The OHP minimizes the time the teacher spends writing on the board, with his or her back to the class. The OHP can dramatically reduce the amount of paper used for photocopies: anything that can be photocopied can also be photocopied onto an OHT.
