The videos were taken at an ELTjam session during the 2014 IATEFL conference in Harrogate. They each last five minutes and are there to get people talking about what is happening to the ELT industry now and what might happen later.
Martyn talks about the importance of video content in teaching, getting students motivated and improving actual learning materials. He talks about the surge of data in the internet and how that will affect video, which already makes up more than 50% of content on the Internet.
