Teenage students often tire of the topics in the coursebook. In this webinar I’ll be sharing some practical ideas for designing classroom activities based on topics that have genuine appeal for teenage students. We’ll start by looking at ways we can use selfies to generate language; then we’ll switch to ‘airplane mode’ and look at activities that can be done using the basic functionality of a smartphone - without apps or internet. Finally, I’ll share some ways of using memes as the basis for creative communicative classroom activities.
