Learning Technologies for the Classroom

This course introduces teachers of English to key aspects of using new technologies in the language classroom and covers a range of web technologies, including using the internet, cyber well-being for learners, using Office applications, using online video and audio and using social networking and other web technologies for educational purposes.

Join us on 11 July at 12pm UK time for a webinar with Fiona Mauchline. Fiona will be looking at a number of ways to unlock and enhance creativity in the teenage classroom.

We have over 15 fantastic new lesson plans for teachers of young learners aged 5-11. Each plan uses engaging and fun material from our LearnEnglish Kids website.
