Km Zero: Making English distance learning a reality

Making English distance learning a reality

Our mission at Pearson is to help people make progress in their lives through learning and due to these unexpected circumstances we want to offer all our support and do everything possible to ensure that teaching and learning can continue as smoothly as possible during this period of uncertainty.

Due to growing concerns related to the Covid-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak in Spain and abroad, we have decided to hold our upcoming training events for Secondary school teachers planned  for Saturday 14th March in Madrid and 21st March in Zaragoza online.

Order! Order! Getting our students presenting and debating (Michael Brand)
Being able to give a presentation or engage in constructive debate are essential skills, but ones that many people lack – possibly they didn’t get much practice or skills development in school. But all that is beginning to change, with projects such as Global Classrooms in Madrid evidence of this. This session will explain approaches and activities to get our students presenting and debating confidently and successfully.
Saturday 14th March 10:00

Reading and writing just got exciting (Phil Brownsword, Michael Brand)
Reading and writing are tested extensively in external and university entrance exams, but our lessons to develop these skills needn’t be dull! In this talk we’ll look at some activities that will get our students working collaboratively to get better at reading and writing – activities that will improve their skills and bring our lessons to life.

Scaffolding in CLIL. Make your students BLOOM (Emma San José)
This session will offer an approach to Bloom’s Taxonomy in a CLIL context. Considering CLIL as a content AND language integrated learning methodology, teachers quite often have to face some issues like the requirement for content teachers to help students acquire the language despite not being language teachers.
Bloom’s Taxonomy and its different levels in cognition offers support and turns out to have a very practical application in CLIL environments. It can be used for scaffolding content AND language, modelling, differentiation and also guides teachers in how to survive the challenge.
Saturday 14th March 12:00

Connecting with the video generation (Michael Brand)
For entertainment, interacting with friends, or just trying to make sense of the world, the medium of choice for today’s teens is video. The implications for our classes are clear: If we want to engage with them and help them learn more effectively, video is a vital ingredient. But which videos should we choose? How can we best present them in our classes to make them both fun and educational? And how can we get our students making their own videos? In this session we will deal with these questions and provide a wealth of practical activities for you to try with your students.

I don’t believe it! 5 guessing games for your ELT class

You’ll never guess what I did last weekend!  *answer revealed at bottom of blog post.

People like guessing. And they like getting other people to guess. Think of your own experience. Before revealing something to someone, have you ever invited your listener to ‘have a guess’, hyping up what it is you were about to reveal? And you might have given your listener a few guesses, turning the interaction into a sort of game.

Speaking guessing games are a mainstay of ELT lessons. Sometimes used as warmers, fillers or even the main speaking activity, they add a game element, provide a task for the listener which encourages them to listen, and often allow our learners to speak about themselves. In the blog post we look at five.
