An English teacher’s digital toolkit: A practical guide

 

This workshop is for Business English teachers just starting out, or wishing to refresh their  knowledge of using online tools and resources. It will look at a  range of applications, both familiar and less so, that make the organization, sharing and delivering of their web-based teaching materials easier and more effective. Topics to be covered are:

  • Managing the web – rather than it managing you!
  • Google docs – an introduction to cloud computing for teaching purposes
  • Wikis – a simple and effective way of creating virtual learning environments
  • YouTube – practical advice on getting the most from this video sharing website
  • Mobile learning – a brief introduction

Participants will gain hands on experience of using a variety of  powerful web-based tools that can be used to enhance learning in and beyond the classroom.
