Event Date: 21st April 2022
Around the world there are many classrooms with no technology – no computers, no copying, even no books. The pandemic has introduced us to its opposite: technology with no classrooms.
These opposed situations share a lot of similarities. The problem common to both is: how can teachers overcome the constraints of the situation to teach in a way they feel is best ELT practice.
In this webinar, we explore this area and show that, paradoxically, these constraints can lead to creative and novel activities for language teaching.
