MATEFL NOVEMBER WEBINAR The November webinar was held on Saturday, 12th November 2022 with Lindsay Clandfield.and was very well attended.
Please teacher, can you explain this grammar to me? (60 minutes)
The way teachers explain grammar will reflect their understanding of what is good for their students. While extended practice is important, the difference between a good grammar presentation and one that has misfired can be the difference between a memorable learning experience and a gentle snooze. In this workshop we’ll look at a teacher’s toolkit of options for ‘explaining’ or ‘presenting’ grammar.
What we talk about when we talk about interaction (90 minutes)
The word ‘interact’ and its various forms has been very popular in language education and especially in education technology. But as we are more and more surrounded by “interactive software”, does this still have the capability to motivate as much as when it was new? This talk looks what we mean now by interaction, the kinds of interaction we are currently engaging in online and the implications for the classroom. For the practically-minded, this talk will include several fun activities with learners on Whatsapp, Facebook and online forums.
