British Council Argentina – plenaries
(1) Enhancing language learning through technology: teaching in the 21st Century
This plenary talk will take a ‘snap-shot’ of teaching in the 21st century. It will critically analyse key learning technologies, and explore some of the many pedagogical controversies in this field. By drawing on the research, as well as his background as a teacher, teacher trainer, Director of Studies and author, the speaker will provide a multi-dimensional picture of teaching and learning using technology, with pedagogy at the centre.
(2) Practical ideas for using digital technologies in language teaching
This highly practical session aims to de-mystify the use of technology in language teaching by providing a number of practical ideas where students focus on language. It is in two parts. Firstly, it will update participants on some new developments in hardware and software. Secondly, there will be an interactive presentation of practical ideas for teaching grammar, vocabulary, the four language skills and phonology, as well as a short focus on game-based learning.
