Empowering English Language Learners with Tools from the Web
We will explore web-based tools such as blogs, wikis, podcasts, VoiceThreads, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and social bookmarking sites like Delicious. The presenter will share an overview of different tools available to language educators, briefly explain how each tool works, and discuss a rationale for their use in teaching languages. The workshop will situate web-based tools within the framework of differentiated instruction and 21st century learning skills. The central purpose of the presentation is to de-mystify these tools and show how they can be used in teaching and assessing English Language Learners.
This useful workshop will give you ideas and tools for your classes!
