Using Pinterest to Promote Genuine Communication and Enhance Personalised Learning
This talk aims at sharing the findings of the use of Pinterest, an interactive visual discovery tool, in a C1 level class in Brazil. I will provide the audience with a framework of activities and assess the effectiveness of the use of images in engaging students in the practice of English outside the classroom, enabling learners to customise the content of the course, encouraging critical thinking and providing students with a personalised learning experience. The audience will also have access to the data collected and the opportunity to assess the applicability of the tool in different learning contexts.
