WORKSHOP From input to outcomes
Neuroscience has proved that there’s no learning without emotions, and emotions come from our inner motivation, from what it moves us, from the outcomes we intend to achieve.
ICT and emotions can go hand in hand. Well implemented ICT resources can be an integral part of truly emotional experiences that can engage our pupils to produce language and make them see their outcomes accomplished with the sense of achievement that it gives.
In this session we will present real experiences, activities and ideas to use in your classes. Ready for a happy-geeky moment?
