I was really pleased to have taken part in this memorable TESOL SPAIN National Convention held in Elche.
I had never before spoken in a training event like this, and despite all the nerves and fears it turned out to be a truly wonderful experience. I had the chance to meet and listen to many ELT professionals I knew and followed online, and I was lucky to have met many like-minded teachers I hope to keep in touch with.
Thank you to all the TESOL Board members and organizers for giving me the opportunity to share some of my classroom experiences at the convention.
My talk was about student involvement: Putting Learners in the Driving Seat.
Some of the work I referred to in my talk is available in these blogposts:
Examples from padlet:Verb patterns.
I always collect everything I do in class and post the pictures and summary in an animated video that I play on the last day, and share with them via email or on our LMS. In the past I would use google slideshows, but I’ve become very fond of using POWTOON, a very easy-to-use tool to create presentations and animated videos.
