04/02/2017 - 12:15
This time of year is a great opportunity to have fun with your students, reflect on the previous year and look ahead to the one to come, but you can end up spending hours trying to find the right activities for your class. This webinar will share some of my favourites, along with the materials, so that all you have to do is adapt them to your students and your own experience of Christmas and New Year and your classes will be ready to go.
Online courses, whether for teachers or learners, offer so many advantages but sometimes things don’t work out as planned. Participants find it difficult to manage their time, they get demotivated, and small technical hitches can become huge stumbling blocks. You may be using a state-of-the-art learning platform and have fantastic content, but is that enough when your students are that imperfect species … humans? We’re going to look at some ways online learning can be made much more effective both from a participant’s and a course provider’s point of view.
Ever seen students presenting in class work that’s been obviously copied and pasted from the internet? Feeling concerned about your students’ academic habits? How can you prevent plagiarism starting from young learners? With more and more schools adopting Project Based Learning, forming good academic habits from an early stage is essential. A workshop with tips and hints on how to guide your learners to analyze and synthesize rather than copy and paste. Student projects will be displayed.

There are numerous places where teachers turn to for new, better, or more engaging activities for their students, including printed materials, websites and, of course, their colleagues. One would think that there’s no real need to create yet another online storage of activities that “can help a busy teacher”… but #flashmobELT was designed to be more than just that. In this session you will find out all about the advantages and originality of #FlashmobELT project, learn how to benefit from it and freshen up your classes with activities that have been successfully tried out in classrooms around the world.
