Never Have I Ever ... Taught Secondary Kids Online
Teaching EFL students can be nowadays difficult and extremely demanding due to the situation created by Covid 19. Willy-nilly we need to adapt to the current situation, continue to be professional and operational from home and seize new ways to meet students’ learning needs in the virtual environment we may not be that familiar with. This workshop aims at giving you a little bit of the know-how to use the tools the Express Digibooks and the Zoom platforms have to offer in order to make your online lessons interactive and fun and engage students in an innovative and motivational way. We will look at new ways to teach different skills or monitor students’ progress in no time. We can still encourage team spirit and collaboration despite the social distancing.
