Webinar for Teachers
Digital recordings, or how to get your students to fast-track their Speaking
______________________________________________________
Wednesday 1st April - 10:00 to 11:30
 
 

 
Abstract
   

In this session, we will listen to examples of audio journals and exam speaking tasks recorded by students to reflect on their own speaking skills. We will look at how to structure an activity around what the students have produced in order for them to become the makers of their own change and develop some strategies for self-improvement that they will be able to use for life. The principles and activities we will discuss and experiment together during the webinar are perfect to encourage students to practise their speaking independently and at home while we face the abrupt switch to online teaching. They are adaptable to all levels, ages, and types of classes. Your participation will be required, and you will need to attend the webinar on a computer, so your phones are ready to be used. Not only will you get a lesson planned and ready to roll out but you will experience the process from the student’s perspective. Looking forward to meeting you online!.

Webinars for Teachers
Using technology in exam preparation classes
______________________________________________________
Friday 3rd April - 10:00 to 12:30
 
 

 
Abstract
   

Nowadays, teachers are regularly encouraged to use technology in teaching English. We dutifully look for apps, websites and software to support our students who are preparing for exams. Researching tools, becoming familiar with their use and training our learners to use them takes time and energy. However, the question arises: how can we ensure they give extra value to our lessons? How can these tools enhance the learning process? In this Webinar, I’d like to show you a couple of tech tools that my students and I have found very useful when preparing for exams. Don’t worry if you are not the most tech-savvy person, most of these tools are very easily to use.
