Description: Sitting alone at home, staring at a screen for most of your learning and interaction is not the ideal context for memorable learning moments to happen. Vocabulary learning in particular needs variety of stimuli and personalisable contexts.
This interactive session, led by Fiona Mauchline, will look at a selection of activities and tips from ETpedia Vocabulary and reshape them for use in the remote classroom, whether for synchronous or asynchronous learning (or even a mix of the two in hybrid lessons). It will also suggest ways of creating a classroom ‘vibe’, socialising the remote classroom through collaboration and a dash of competition.
