      Teens together: collaborative learning and project work

      Well-structured collaboration in class, especially project work, is an ideal way for teachers to help their teenage students develop a range of life competencies. In this webinar we’ll look at the benefits of collaborative projects, the best ways to set them up and run them, and how to avoid the problems that might arise when doing them. We’ll also look at a number of examples of projects that you can use with your own students.

      Promoting self-study for success in IELTS: Making the most of additional materials and flipping the classroom

      Self-study is an essential component of success in any language proficiency test, yet many students may be reluctant to do it or find it difficult to get started. In this webinar, we will discuss some obstacles to self-study that students may face and how we, as tutors, can help them to become effective independent learners, which will contribute to success in the IELTS test. We will first focus on how online skills practice modules can be used as an effective self-study tool, using the online self-study materials from the MINDSET for IELTS series as an example. We will then explore the possibility of using the flipped classroom method as a means of better integrating self-study with lesson content and how this method can help students feel better prepared for the IELTS test.

      Using technology in the IELTS classroom to increase student engagement and interactivity

      These days, there are lots of technologically enhanced learning tools to enhance both teaching effectiveness and particularly student experience. However, with so many options, it may be tempting to overuse tech or perhaps use it in a repeated or less structured way resulting in its benefits being compromised with student experience suffering. In this webinar, we will examine various tech options to be used within the classroom and categorise them into the function they serve and pedagogical reasons for their use. In particular, looking at options to gamify, assess, reflect and extend in freer practice will be highlighted and a systematic approach proposed for increasing student engagement and interactivity. For the main part, we’ll explore the use of free to access tech options, many that simply require a smartphone. MINDSET for IELTS will be used to provide the content to be exploited using various tech apps and software in order to illustrate how we can further create a highly modern classroom environment tailored to our students.
