As promised, here are the slides from my session on ‘Approaches to culture with 21st century students’.
Approaches to culture with 21st century students
Thank you to everyone who attended the seminar in Bellinzona, Switzerland last week. I really enjoyed the day and hope that the sessions managed to combine ‘food for thought’ with practical ideas to try out in the classroom. As promised, I am uploading the materials again here.
It would be great to hear how the ideas we discussed work in your own classrooms, so do get in touch and let me know all about it!
Thanks for your continuing interest in the talks I gave in Switzerland.
Take a look at the slides for Friday’s talk in Zürich in pdf format.
Same goes for Saturday’s talk in Bern.
The two talks were simmerent – which is a word that I have just invented. I guess it means pretty-similar-in-parts-without-being-exactly-the-same. Wonder if it will catch on? Maybe diffilar sounds better?
Hello, Swiss teachers! 🙂
I really enjoyed meeting you at the Oxford Gymnasium Event in Zurich…
I’ve decided to make one handout covering both talks, seeing as there was a fair bit of overlap. Feel free to get in touch if there is anything which is not clear.
Thanks again for your participation, contributions and feedback.
I was in Zürich on June 2 for an OUP Primary event. Great to be back in Switzerland after last year’s trip to Lucerne, but a pity that it was such a short visit – I was in the country for less than 24 hours, so saw more of Zürich airport than I did of the city itself.
I did two sessions, ‘Teaching and learning with a smile’ showcasing the 2nd edition of the Happy series, and another session on ‘Motivating young learners with Super Surprise’.
As promised, the slides from both sessions are available here in pdf format.
Thanks to all the teachers who took part, and to Jayne Herzog and Jennifer Hinam for organising the event so well.
