Topic 1 │ 09:00-10:30
Digital support inside and outside the classroom
Speaker: Mark Richard
- How to integrate technology into teaching and learning
- Which digital tools support learning, and how?
- Techniques and activities to make the most of digital tools
Technology itself does not make students learn better. In fact, if used without proper planning, it can waste our valuable time. However, if appropriate technology is selected thoughtfully and integrated effectively into our courses, it can help to motivate and engage students, leading to more effective learning. In this session, we’ll explore the role of digital technology in our teaching by answering these three questions:
-How can teachers start using technology?
-What technology should teachers use in class?
-What can students do with technology outside the classroom?
Throughout, the presenter will evaluate the pros and cons of various digital tools, and demonstrate practical, engaging ways to apply technology so that it provides students with more opportunities to play with and produce English.
Topic 2 │ 10:40-12:10
Starlight: Exciting story lessons to spark creativity and speaking!
Speaker: Julie Hwang
- Presenting short stories to young learners
- Presenting vocabulary activities linked to stories
- Designing cross-curricular activities and story projects
Children come to the primary classroom equipped with a good understanding of stories and the way they work. Not only are stories enjoyable, they provide the best opportunity for presenting new language structures and developing literacy skills. Stories also provide students with opportunities to transfer useful, practical English to a range of different cross-curricular content and subject matter that the students are working on at school.
This session will introduce teachers to the new ‘Starlight’ course published by Oxford University Press. Teachers will participate in fun mini-lessons to promote story and language skills as well as engage in cross-curricular activities that encourage students to communicate fluently and build academic success.
