As part of our countdown to the International House Conference in Barcelona, which takes place on 8/9 February, this is the first of five posts which focus on the speakers on the LTSIG strand. The IATEFL Business English SIG and IATEFL Leadership and Management SIG will also be there.
First up is Nicky Hockly.
Session Title: Remixing digital creativity
Digital literacies and creativity are both key 21st century skills. Being digital literate in the 21st century includes understanding ‘remix’ – reworking original digital content to create new digital artefacts. Remix provides a virtual space for learners in which both creativity and language learning can be supported. In this workshop, we explore remix in detail, including how it can be used with – and created by – your own learners. Here, Nicky introduces her session:
