Expert Talks: Supporting diversity in English teaching through technology
Diversity, equity, and literacy are hot buzzwords in education these days – but what do they mean? How can we achieve them as English teachers at schools all over the world?
In this live discussion on October 26th with two experts, we tackle the question of how to support diversity and increase equity in English as a Foreign/Second Language teaching, how to integrate technology as a tool for language teachers to create inclusive learning environments, and what kind of new media outlets are out there that support literacy.
Our speakers will be Dr. Andrea Honigsfeld, Professor in the Division of Education at Molloy College, USA, and Dorka Horvath, CEO and Co-Founder of BOOKR Kids.
