Learn English with TED Talks: a flipped approach

Please register for this event either via the Ning or via email (to events@eltabb.com) by September 20th. 

This workshop takes place on Sept. 29, 2018 from 2pm-5pm at GLS Sprachenzentrum (Kastanienallee 82, 10435 Berlin).

With their new program, Learn English with TED Talks, the ELT publisher National Geographic Learning has taken a flipped classroom approach to using TED Talks as a teaching and learning resource.

The program is designed to help learners not only understand the language but above all discuss the “ideas worth sharing” of a broad range of TED Talks.

In this presentation and workshop, Tim will demonstrate the overall pedagogical concept underlying the program as well as provide practical classroom examples of using the learner app and the teacher’s digital Classroom Presentation Tool. Remember to bring your smartphone with you!
