Course Description: Enhance Your ESOL Classes with Field-tested Online Resources
The use of online programs, incorporated into your ESOL teaching, will create great results from building rapport to empowering your students to access information outside of class. Join the presenters as they introduce you to these three, free, online tools: Edmodo, Jeopardy and YouTube. Participants will spend at least 75% of the workshop on a computer for an orientation to these tools, followed by ample time to adapt these resources for their classrooms. This interactive workshop is designed for instructors who already know how to navigate the web and who have the option of using a computer for ESOL instruction. In an ideal situation the students should also have access to the internet via a computer at home, ESOL class, the public library, or a smart phone.
