Workshop: “Motivating 21st Century Teenage Students in the English Language Classroom”
Abstract: There are several reasons why we should use technology at school: to make lessons more interesting, so that students could understand better and remember more easily, as well as use the Internet wisely. It is also us, teachers, who already are or soon will be expected to include the ability to use information and technology at work, in the English classroom.
At the same time, a well organized digital school cannot lack traditional ways of teaching! What we should aim for is a wise blend of best analogue practices and modern solutions. During the session we will present concrete answers and ideas which will enable the teachers to implement high-tech solutions in conditions typical for most schools in Eastern and Central Europe. We will also focus on how to motivate teenagers by implementing technology into their environment.”
