About the webinar

The British Council is committed to supporting the use of technology for the continuation of education in a crisis. As many teachers find themselves in an unfamiliar situation of having to teach their classes online, with little or no experience, the British Council TeachingEnglish website is committed to providing as much support as possible to help you navigate your way through the world of online teaching.

This is the fifth in a series of webinars, which offers guidance in key areas. This webinar is for teachers working to deliver classes and maintain an online offer of education with young learners.

The world has been put on hold but education continues. As teachers we have been faced with this immense hurdle to adapt our teaching for the online world. We are succeeding but is there anything else we can do? How can we adapt our teaching for young learners? Join me in this session where we will be looking at different activities and strategies to keep young learners engaged.
