Course description

This course allows teachers to reflect on their experiences of using technology to teach English, especially in the last year when many courses went online. The purpose of this course is to look at way in which we can use technology even more effectively. The course will also look into ways of working towards developing some shared principles for using technology in the future. The course will explore ways in which teachers can familiarise themselves with current developments in the use of Technology in their classrooms, ways in which they can become more confident in using technology in an environment where students are familiar with a wide range of modern technology and applications, ways to familiarise the participants with recent pedagogical and technology developments and to increase participants’ awareness of the opportunities to integrate ICT into teaching and learning processes in their schools. All this in the context of networking and sharing with other colleagues from different parts of Europe while exchanging in the English language to promote confidence in their communication skills.
