Practical activities for motivating today’s “global” students

Paul Grainger

Globalization and advances in technology have had a significant effect on our education industry. Satellite TV, the Internet and social networking sites, such as Facebook and You Tube have helped to widen students’ vision of the world. However, this is rarely reflected in the classrooms where many ELT teachers continue to use traditional teaching styles & materials, and fail to motivate their students effectively.

This workshop will explore practical techniques for motivating today’s ‘global’ students. Find out how even the most boring materials can be adapted to motivate today’s generation through personalization activities, projects, and critical thinking strategies.
