A TiLT Webinar with Dr Florencia Henshaw: We need to talk: Tech tools and tasks to foster interaction in the classroom and beyond
November 18 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
ALL London organises webinars for the MFL community and this webinar, held in a Zoom room and also viewable on an unlisted YouTube stream, is open to all MFL teachers. We hope that you will like us and want to join!
We thank Joe Dale for co-ordinating the TiLT (Technology in Language Teaching) series of webinars, bringing together teachers who are interested in developing their use of technology in their teaching. As well as enhancing our skills, we also get to meet other ‘keenies’ from across the globe, and can get to know each other informally by chatting before, during and after the webinar.
We also thank the presenters, who give freely of their time and expertise. Where possible, most sessions are recorded and available for viewing later.
In this webinar, the presenter will first discuss some key aspects of interpersonal communication. She will then discuss several web-based tools to help students prepare for and participate in interpersonal tasks. Ideas will include low-tech options, such as information-gap tasks that can be done in Zoom breakout rooms, as well as high-tech options, such as using online platforms to connect learners with native speakers of the target language around the world.
Florencia Henshaw has a PhD in Second Language Acquisition and Teacher Education from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, where she is now the Director of Advanced Spanish. Dr. Henshaw has published and presented nationally and internationally on technology-enhanced language teaching. Dr. Henshaw is also an editorial board member of FLTMAG (a publication of the International Association for Language Learning Technology), and a member of the Board of Directors of the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese.
