⚫ 14.30 – 15.45 Tuning in the teenage audience with authenticity
Twenty-first century learners tend to dwell in a digital world filled with fantasy figures and social media. Little time is spent on developing soft skills and students that have been bombarded with knowledge through the technological platforms that they interact with are less than receptive to tired traditional teaching practices. When presented with these challenges it’s tempting for teachers to try to embrace the new digital mediums and use them as enables to help students interest and engagement but without a solid base on real skills this. can be a waste. Showing the students what’s expected of them in terms of target language and how, what they’re learning can be applied directly to authentic communication can still be more of a motivator In this session we’ll look at how exposing students to language in an authentic context with communicative goals that they can readily identify with can be just the sort of stimulus to kick-start the language learning process.

⚫ 16.00 – 17.00 Want to watch your students to soar to the sky rather than plummet to the depths? - What you need is fairy dust.
There should be a lot more going on in an English class than just teaching language, we need our students to actively participate, perform and see a lesson as a learning adventure rather than a plate of cold lexis to be consumed and regurgitated under the harsh glare of the whiteboard. We need to create an environment that encourages engagement and gets the imagination sparking and the communication bubbling, a world filled with superheroes and slick animation, creative contexts and activities that stimulate collaboration and open the door to new dimensions of learning – here at Pearson we look for that extra magical ingredient that can bring a course book to life and add a huge dose of fun and excitement to really animate the curriculum, come and judge how well we’ve done.
