Primary and secondary school teachers and college professors
- Understand that ICT enables us to teach the language in a more appealing way as long as we include meaningful instructions and tasks.
- Reflect upon the pros and cons of using technological tools in the classroom.
- See examples of different activities carried out in the ELL class using different apps to practice the four language skills.
• The rationale behind using ICT in the classroom according to different authors and classroom experience.
• Speaking made more interesting through the use of different apps.
• Writing made more appealing and easier to grade for the teacher.
• Grammar and vocabulary made more fun and memorable.
• ICT used as an "enabler" rather than an "enslaver".
This is a hands-on workshop which will give attendees the chance to try new apps and websites to facilitate the learning of the language in a more engaging and fun way. Participants will have the opportunity to learn about different apps that they will try first to later include in their classes.
