Full Session Description (as long as you would like):
Traditionally, ESL teachers would check students learning at the end of the lesson through practice activities, creating posters, short quizzes/tests or concept checking. These are all still valid techniques, but now we also have a rich variety of digital tools at our disposal to help student demonstrate what they’ve learnt. Students can create digital posters using tools such as Padlet, Thinglink and Linoit while teachers can create quizzes using mobile apps such as Socrative. These and other tools will be discussed and demonstrated during the session.
