09:00 às 09:45 – LECTURE – EDUCATION TECHNOLOGY, with Paulo Dantas

In this talk we are going to look into some of the key concepts and new paradigms related to assessment in language teaching and how they can impact our practice more positively. We are also going to suggest tools, approaches and principles that can be applied to more current models of evaluation.

09:45 às 10:30 – LECTURE – TEACHING YOUNG LEARNERS, with Renata Borges

We are going to discuss child development and how it influences the way they learn. We are also going to talk about important aspects of the learning process of young learners, talking about what we know about how children learn and how we can apply that to the classroom.

10:30 às 12:00 – WORKSHOP – EDUCATION TECHNOLOGY, with Paulo Dantas / WORKSHOP – TEACHING YOUNG LEARNERS, with Renata Borges

12:00 às 13:30 – LUNCH TIME

13:30 às 14:15 – LECTURE – ASSESSMENT, with Vinicíus Nobre

In this talk, we’ll discover ways technology can be used to improve language learning and how it can impact positively learners motivation and outcomes. We will also discuss what has been going on in the field of EdTech and how technology is likely to reshape learning in the future.

14:15 às 15:00 – LECTURE – METHODOLOGIES AND APPROACHES, with Stephan Hughes

Teaching English to speakers of other languages has most certainly gone beyond the Communicative Approach and its hybrid forms. The need to teach IN English and not just about English has disrupted the what, the how of teaching. The ubiquitous nature of learning (thanks to the constantly consistent enhancement of digital tools and intelligences) means redefining teacher and learner roles, learning spaces, learning aims, assessment systems and educational outcomes. The landscape that lies before us favors teachers who can be X-Men, not Avengers. This talk will glide over three major educational umbrella concepts in ELT and pave the way for a 90-minute workshop to explore them more practically.
