Short Session Description (one line): Do your students find doing drills boring? Have you ever wished practicing English could be more enjoyable for you and your students? If you say yes, this session is for you!
Full Session Description (as long as you would like):Designing a dynamic lesson is a challenging task to accomplish and as a teacher I have concerns about this issue. In my teaching experience, teaching integrated language skills through mechanical exercises and traditional fill-in-the-blank, error correction and multiple choice assessments do not interest students as much as we think. Education technology tools has allowed anyone to become a content producer. People share their videos or online magazines on YOUTUBE and gain an income. The result is an explosion of high-quality teaching materials. Our students can learn and interact with their peers outside so we designed projects for our students at Gedik University, School of Foreign Languages. These projects can be applied to all levels but of course you need to change the content.
