As the use of technology in language teaching and learning is steadily becoming the norm rather than the exception, the potential for taking learning beyond the four walls of the classroom is enormous. We teachers just need to learn what’s out there and how best to use it with our students.
This hands-on workshop aims to provide teachers with an introduction to tools and tasks which can help learners to consolidate knowledge, aid collaboration and creation.
With the technology at our fingertips and a wealth of resources now at hand, we really can take teaching and learning beyond the classroom and as a result ensure that our students have the chance to better their English beyond the classroom.
- Session A: Getting your head in the cloud: Introduction and introductions
- Session B: Developing writing skills
- Session C: Developing speaking and pronunciation
