About the talk

In this webinar, Joe Dale showcases a variety of examples of good practice in online teaching from practising secondary school languages teachers on Twitter. He explains ways in which teachers have dealt with life during the pandemic and show how different cross-platform tools can promote collaboration, independent learning, retrieval practice and assessment opportunities in a remote teaching and hybrid teaching context. Joe demonstrates how easy it is to enhance learning in a purposeful way with a range of tools which are device agnostic allowing learners to practise, reflect and share the results easily. Participants  have the opportunity to explore a practical evidence-based approach to formative assessment.
