ELI – National Geographic Learning Spring Virtual Tour 5th & 12th April 2022:

Teach Well, Study Well!


Teaching the Whole Student
Cultivating a positive mindset, learning to grow from failure and developing a sense of self are just some of the crucial skills our students need, particularly in these challenging times. In this talk, I will be looking at how we can use our unique position as language teachers to encourage our students both to study well and to live well.

Powering The Classroom Through Ideas
The role of the teacher is multi-faceted – not only do we have the responsibility of developing our learners’ language knowledge and skills, but also the cognitive, social and interpersonal skills they need to in order to be successful in school, work and life in the 21st century. Not least amongst these is the need to get our learners to start thinking for themselves and asking questions, rather than being spoon-fed. With examples from National Geographic Learning’s Perspectives series, in this session I’ll show how we can incorporate visible thinking routines into our lessons to not only Getting students talking and actively engaged in classroom discussions isn’t always the easiest thing. So how can we facilitate this? How can we stimulate them to actually think, ask questions and have opinions? Using examples from National Geographic Learning’s Perspectives series, in this presentation we’ll show how using authentic content and the ideas they bring can help power discussion, critical thinking and creativity in the ELT classroom.
