Using images and video to change perspectives
17.45 – 18.45 Room 11
In this workshop we will look at how we can develop materials and change our learners’ perspective on image, culture and people, exploring various clips and websites that can enrich the classroom with student-generated materials. We’ll look at typical topics and activities to help our learners explore useful websites: language and skills activities to ensure that the syllabus is met and the learners’ language experience is enriched.
