HOW WE CAN SUPPORT 21st-CENTURY LEARNERS - Russell Stannard

There is no doubt that technology has opened an infinite number of learning opportunities to young students. However, it is not clear that they are making use of these opportunities or are even aware of them. What role can a teacher play and what advice can teachers give to their students? The focus is on simple, effective tools that can encourage your students to become more autonomous learners who can benefit from the huge expansion in learning opportunities. Drawing on real practical examples, this talk will appeal to even the most technophobic of teachers.

A YOUNG PERSON WHO READS BECOMES AN ADULT WHO THINKS - Andy Cowle

In this practical talk we will look at ways to introduce and exploit graded fiction in order to show that extensive reading (as opposed to intensive reading) is not an option ‘only for those who like reading’ or ‘for which there is no time or money’, but is instead a crucial missing element in most syllabus designs. It demonstrates the tried and tested case for extensive reading to be parallel to traditional grammar teaching, bringing with it astonishing language learning results.

Sessione 1
13:45 14:30 Bringing 21st-century competences and life skills into your classroom
Secondaria di 1° grado, Secondaria di 2° grado

Providing opportunities for students to develop 21st-century competences and life skills in the classroom, helps them to become life-long learners and to succeed in today’s rapidly changing society. We will define what 21st-century competences and life skills are, and explain how they relate to other key competences. We will also look at some practical examples of how we can incorporate them into our everyday teaching for the benefit of all our students.

Rachel Harraway, Educational Researcher

13:45 14:30 Flipped Classroom
Secondaria di 1° grado, Secondaria di 2° grado

The workshop will present practical ideas and examples of the Flipped Classroom activities as well as opportunities to discuss their possible impact on learning. If you really want to understand the Flipped Classroom and understand what it might mean to language teaching, then this is the talk for you.

13:45 14:30 INVALSI 2018: Everything you need to know to prepare students successfully
Secondaria di 1° grado, Secondaria di 2° grado

The D.Lgs. 62/17 about the assessment and certification of learners has, amongst other things, altered the relationship between INVALSI and how schools are evaluated, especially as far as English is concerned. During this workshop, we will explore in detail the structure of the INVALSI test of English and how to prepare students for it, taking into consideration also how it works in relation to the Esame di Stato.

Maria Teresa Stancarone, M.I.U.R. Direzione Generale per gli Ordinamenti scolastici e la valutazione del sistema nazionale di Istruzione

13:45 14:30 Teaching English through music
Secondaria di 1° grado, Secondaria di 2° grado

This talk looks at exploiting pop music in the classroom. Pop songs are perhaps the most widely available authentic language resource and  they are also one of the best ways to involve and motivate students in the learning process.  We will show how songs fix vocabulary and structures into long-term memory and look at practical examples that you can use in your classroom.

Fergal Kavanagh, Teacher Trainer

14:45 15:30 Motivating learners with video
Secondaria di 1° grado, Secondaria di 2° grado

Tapping into the interests and passions of our learners is half the motivation battle won, and it is a rare learner of any age who does not like films or watch videos. Today, we live in an audio-visual world more than ever before, thanks to the internet. It’s a logical teaching step, therefore, to utilise this meaningfully in our classes. We can use video effectively to engage and support students, and to make them see that English is real and can be fun. In this session, we will explore ways of finding and using free film clips, as well as coursebook-related video content, to support language teaching and the development of communication and reading skills.

Andy Cowle, International Communication Trainer
