Jane Cadwallader
Have you got something to say?
This talk will explore some practical ideas on how to help children do good presentations … and in English .
Being able to express yourself in front of other people is extremely important whatever you do in life. Giving a presentation in English, from simple “show and tell” activities to book reviews or telling the class about an environmental issue, brings together vocabulary, grammar, functional language, discourse and phonology. This session will look at some ways to make children more confident when giving presentations and some guidelines on how to help them be more effective at the same time.
15:15 – 16:00
Fiona Mauchline
Remote, remotely, remoteness: teaching vocab in an Online World
Sitting staring at a coursebook or a screen for most of your learning is not the ideal way for memorable learning moments to happen. Vocabulary learning in particular needs variety of stimuli and ‘personalisable’ contexts. This session will look at a selection of activities and tips, and reshape them for use in the remote classroom, so that vocab-learning becomes not just memorable and personalised, but sociable and fun.

16:00 – 16:45
Dave Spencer
The Incredibles: Teachers and their amazing superpowers!
Just like Clark Kent, in their day-to-day lives teachers usually prefer to hide their superpowers in order to keep their true identities secret. But, no, in this session it’s time to shout out about our many special abilities! The ultimate aim of this talk will be to remind you of just some of the unique strengths that all teachers possess, but that we (and others) sometimes forget or take for granted. No capes are required for the talk.

16:45 – 17:30
Marta Rosińska
Coaching Activities with a Huge Language Pay-off

Teachers all over the world have been using, often unknowingly, coaching techniques in their teaching for years now. Currently, in these turbulent times, they have become even more desirable as students need support in more than just their linguistic competences. This session will explore the potential of simple yet effective coaching activities – we’ll look at a number of practical activities which marry the two aspects of our job: building our students' self-awareness and self-esteem and simply teaching vocabulary, grammar and language skills.
