An answer may be found in letting learners do in the classroom what they do so well outside of it: chat!
Recent research has shown that making use of digital tools like Whatsapp increases both the quantity and quality of learners’ language. It also greatens their motivation, willingness to communicate and anxiety reduction.
In this workshop, participants will explore how they can use text chat to stimulate learner-learner interaction in the (CLIL) classroom.
They will learn:
- how to set up a chat task using Google Hangouts.
- gain some hands-on experience in performing a task.
- evaluate the outcomes of a digital CLIL History chat.
Ideally, participants bring a laptop or mobile phone and have set up their own Google account prior to this session.
