Little People; Big Ideas, Rob Dean
The fact that everything seems to be so ‘little’ in the young learners’ classroom can be very misleading: our students require motivational teaching, high-quality materials and carefully considered methodology. How do we engage and encourage students? How do we balance language skills with language systems? What can we reasonably expect children to be able to do in these early years of language learning? This workshop will explore how great teachers can turn the primary classroom into a place where linguistic and personal development can flourish as we get our kids on track for future success in English. The session will be illustrated with a rich selection of material taken from Pearson’s Big English and Poptropica English Islands primary courses.

Sound and Vision Songs and Video in the Classroom, Rob Dean
For many of us, learning a language involved just learning from books. Of course, books still play an important role in language study, (ask any publisher!) but modern methodology is placing increasing emphasis on the use of materials more closely linked with the media familiar to us in everyday life – media such as songs and DVD. This highly practical workshop will look at ways in which we can exploit a variety of songs and video clips to provide variety, raise motivation and cater for different learner styles in the classroom.
