CAMBRIDGE ASSESSMENT ENGLISH TEACHER TRAINING:
Teaching English in the 21st century
We take great pleasure in inviting you to this seminar specially designed for teachers who are preparing candidates for Cambridge Assessment English exams or who are planning to do so in the future.
The Cambridge Assessment English 2018 Seminar in Vigo will focus on the challenges of teaching English in this high-tech 21st century. First, it will help us get a general idea of how to integrate technology into our classroom. It will then move on to the skills English learners need to develop nowadays. You can find all the important information below:
We aim to…
Integrating technology into classroom teaching
|… discuss the benefits of integrating technology into a cycle of learning in class and for exam preparation|
… have a better understanding of using edtech tools and how to integrate technology into a lesson, e.g. flipped learning
… raise awareness of the Cambridge English Digital Framework for Teachers
… provide teachers with some teaching ideas/classroom activities which they can take away to use with their learners
