Teachers are often told to keep their talk time to a minimum. After all, noisy teachers = quiet students. This is certainly true at times. But there are, of course, many situations when the teacher’s voice is either unavoidable or too valuable to silence. And what about our learners? What do they expect? In this practical session, we will consider some teacher talk techniques and activities that can be applied to a wide range of classroom practice.

Here comes Generation Alpha

Secondaria di 1° Grado

This workshop takes a critical look at the characteristics of the emergent teens of Generation Alpha. Which of these do we, as language teachers, believe need encouragement? And how might we achieve this? And what about the less desirable characteristics? What impact do these have on our language classrooms?

Insegnare lingue straniere ad alunni con BES-DSA

Secondaria di 1° Grado, Secondaria di 2° Grado

Questa/o “sessione/workshop” mira a far conoscere ed individuare l’origine delle criticità degli studenti che presentano un bisogno linguistico specifico e le conseguenze in termini di prestazione atipica e gestione dei filtri emotivi.  Tale consapevolezza permette al docente di intervenire in modo efficace e funzionale, riducendo le barriere glottodidattiche e l’ansia linguistica anche attraverso  all’utilizzo di strategie, strumenti e misure per la personalizzazione e l’inclusione, di fondamentale importanza per far emergere e valorizzare i punti di forza degli studenti con una diversa abilità di apprendimento.

The curiosity factor

Secondaria di 1° Grado, Secondaria di 2° Grado

Human beings are insatiably inquisitive creatures. And if we want to engage our students, we first have to arouse their curiosity. In this practical session, we will explore some simple techniques that storytellers use to grab the attention of the listener, reader or viewer. We will consider how these can be applied in the classroom. You will also take away a number of original teaching ideas and activities.
