Teaching digital literacy in the language classroom: 10 Digital Tools for the Interactive Classroom

Día: 22 Feb
Hora: 4:00 p.m.

Sello Verde Event

In this webinar, Nik Peachey looks at a short collection of tools and resources that teachers and students can use in the remote and physical classroom. He shows example activities that can easily be adapted to your own classroom context. Using the tools he presents he demonstrates how, with minimal preparation, you can take any text from the internet and create a series of activities to develop students’ reading, listening, speaking, writing and vocabulary skills. We will explore together a range of digital tools and teaching techniques that teachers can use to utilize the presence of digital devices in the classroom and make them productive. The workshop will show how we can use these devices to enable digital collaboration and develop a range of traditional and digital literacies in ways that are not possible in the analogue classroom.
