Preparing the next generation for new skills and new goals
Next Move is a 21st Century course focused on building English language skills for today’s students. Today’s students are ‘Digital Natives’, born in an era of websites, social media, testing and gaming. That’s how they relate to the world, using technology to express themselves, collaborate and learn.
It’s exciting to be able to communicate so extensively and be part of a global community, especially when you are learning a new language.
• Helps you with mixed-level classes
With graded exercises in the workbooks you can keep assessing how your individual students are progressing and give them the proper support. Project tasks stimulate and motivate the high achievers while also including those that require more support without demotivating them, which means minimal class disruption for you! A guided inductive approach to grammar develops students’ learning skills such as, identifying grammar patterns and formulating grammar rules.
• Keeps students engaged
Where do students go after school? They... go online! So, use Pearson Learning Area and let them practise English in the environment which is so natural to them. ‘Heads-up’ teaching with ActiveTeach software engages all types of learners using visual, auditory and kinesthetic. Interactive exercises make language practice more fun, helping it stick in the learners mind!
• 21st Century Learning
Tasks develop logical and critical thinking and problem-solving skills. Interpersonal and communication skills are developed with the Class Discussion activities. My Assessment Profile and Real World Profiles help you develop those self-directional skills. Use the culture features and chatrooms to bring the world into the classroom, and ‘almost’ take your students out into the world.
