Bringing English to life: practical classroom activities using technology

Laura Laubacher & Sarah Wakefield (Embassy English)

'Bringing English to Life' is Embassy English's approach to integrating technology into classroom teaching, in order to document students' language production and encourage interaction within the local community. As teachers, we'll share practical activities and technology tools that have worked to develop our students' communication skills, as well as present tips on how to best integrate these into everyday teaching.

Radhika Gholkar (British Council India)

Teachers are increasingly expected to use technology to enhance learning. This poses challenges due to low confidence in using technology and confusion around when and how to use it effectively. In this talk, I will give practical ideas for successfully integrating technology in English lessons within school systems, sharing key challenges and solutions drawing on experience from India.
