Event Details

Social networks and Language teaching

This is a 2-hour collaborative session to analyse the potential of social networks and their use in language teaching.

The massive use of social media networks like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Flicker, etc, has generated a lot of potential as pedagogical tools. In this session, participants will critically analyse and discuss the pros and cons of using these technologies in language learning, and explore some “examples of good practice” by language teachers. Finally, the fun bit is where we’ll design a digital task using a social network!

Important Information for this session - BYOD - Bring Your Own Device

Advise participants to bring their own devices, especially mobile devices as this is the technology more and more students use to access social networks.
