Using Images to Drive Learning in the Young Learner Classroom

There are many reasons to use images in the language learning classroom, not least of which is the positive impact they can have on learning. With examples from National Geographic Learning's Wonderful World series, in this session we’ll explore different ways in which we can use images to drive language learning, whilst developing the communicative and cognitive skills of our young learners.

Sparking Learning with Digital Platforms

In this practical session we will learn about the digital tools and resources available from the all-in-one Spark platform for Teachers and Students using Look.

Perfect Projects: Setting Yourself up for Success

Projects: organised chaos, or a valuable educational opportunity where young learners can develop both their linguistic and cognitive skills? In this session we’ll explore what projects are and what makes a good project. Using examples from Our World, Second Edition, we’ll learn about the many benefits of project-based learning, and share some practical tips to help make your project lessons a success!
