Beginning Monday, 28 September, to Friday, 2 October 2015, SKA will be hosting Barb Hoskins Sakamoto (iTDi) on a 5-day workshop tour that will take her to Košice , Vranov nad Topl’ou, Poprad and Banska Bystrica. We’re still working on venues but registration will be here: http://goo.gl/forms/xX8euPwQll.
Barb will be doing hands-on 3-hour workshops.
Barb’s practical workshop will be for those of us teaching young learners (5- to 12-year-olds) on ‘
Creative teaching for 21st century learners‘. She’ll be sharing about teaching techniques to help our learners become strong English users and also critical and creative thinkers. By making every moment of class time count, we can help our students succeed – on exams and in future jobs. We can build both the traditional four skills (speaking, listening, reading, and writing) and the 21st century 4Cs (communication, collaboration, creativity and critical thinking) in every class.
We have to charge for the workshops just to meet costs:
SKA Members – 5 EUR
University students – 2 EUR
Non-SKA Members – 10 EUR
