Digital English Teacher in post-Covid school – new skills and challenges ahead

Sarah Ellis

Summary

The use of technology and digital resources during the pandemic has shown that we can and should be taking advantage of technology where we can to support learning and to increase student engagement. Digital tools and resources enable teachers to deal with the new ‘norm’ and different classroom contexts whether they are teaching synchronously, asynchronously or in a hybrid classroom. However, it’s not just about the tools or activities, teachers need to make sure students are getting the most out of every lesson and that they are aware of the methodology behind the choices they are making as well. This session will consider the use of technology in the current context and look at ideas and activities that can incorporate technology, increase student engagement and lead to more effective learning and teaching.
