Jamie Keddie started off with a degree in Biochemistry from the University of Aberdeen in Scotland. Realizing that he actually wanted to be a musician, he spent most of his twenties studying at Leeds College of Music in Yorkshire, England. After that, he worked as a singer-piano player on ships, but nothing too glamorous.
In 2001 Jamie moved to Barcelona and became an English language teacher. Gradually, his passion moved from music to education, video and storytelling.
As a trainer, Jamie has shared his ideas and insights with teachers and educators in over 40 countries.
Jamie is the winner of a prestigious British Council ELTon award for innovation. He is the author of Images (Oxford University Press, 2008), Bringing online video into the classroom (Oxford University Press, 2014) and Videotelling: YouTube Stories for the Classroom (LessonStream Books, 2017).

This is a practical course, designed to support busy teachers. It is designed to help you – not add to your workload.
Each video is about 6 minutes long.
There is no obligation to watch all of the videos or get involved in the challenges or discussions.
Importantly, each story post is a stand-alone. That means that you can work through them in any order. You can pick and mix. You can jump in and jump out.
You can choose to watch only the videos that interest you. Or you can work through the entire course from beginning to end.
It’s completely up to you.
This is an asynchronous course. And nothing is time limited. That means that you can watch the videos and get involved in the discussions/tasks as and when you like – Netflix style!
All discussions take place in The Fishbowl – the LessonStream community forum.
