Jonathan Brown Teacher and Academic Communications Unit Coordinator – SIBT

There are a multitude of new apps for helping English language learners to improve their speaking and listening skills, however not every app offers a process for learning.

In this session, Jonathan Brown will present on how to take a group of ESL students through a learning arc which is technology focused and prioritises interactivity to help them improve these essential academic communication skills. This arc helps learners move from simple, informal tasks to more sophisticated and highly coordinated activities in a blended learning environment.

Jonathan will also demonstrate how adapting existing software for a new purpose can have powerful results and help build a committed learning community, both online and in the classroom.
