Connecting with the video generation
For entertainment, interacting with friends, or just trying to make sense of the world, the medium of choice for today’s teens is video. The implications for our classes are clear: If we want to engage with them and help them learn more effectively, video is a vital ingredient. But which videos should we choose? How can we best present them in our classes to make them both fun and educational? And how can we get our students making their own videos? In this session we will provide practical activities to deal with these and other questions.
Michael Brand is a Teacher Trainer for Pearson. A passionate linguist, he studied French and German at Durham University, followed by a PGCE in Modern Languages.
Having taught in England and Spain, he has experience in the public, private and state-assisted sectors and has taught young learners, teens and adults. He now spends his time training teachers on all things ELT and his interests include collaborative learning and the creative use of video.
Pearson Secondary materials: real solutions to real challenges
The Secondary English landscape in Mallorca, much like the island itself, is a colourful panorama: educational projects, students’ English level and focus given to external exams can vary tremendously from one school to the next. In this session we’ll look at how Pearson’s different Secondary materials can help all learners fulfill their potential and help offer teachers real solutions to the genuine challenges they face every day.
