Teacher training online

 

Find the right tools for your classroom.

Technology today is helping teachers to enhance their teaching beyond traditional text-based learning and engage students with practical ways of learning.

But the abundance of research into technology use and learning can sometimes feel more confusing than clarifying. So how can we ensure we are using engaging and reliable technology tools that can maximise language learning in our online and face-to-face classrooms?

This course is part of the “Teaching English online and using educational technology” specialism course series, expertly designed to support teachers to critically evaluate ed-tech resources so that they can identify tools that suit their needs and students.
