During the 23rd Annual HUPE Conference (for Croatian English teachers) held in Šibenik, I delivered a practical workshop on behalf of the British Council based on current online and blended learning courses. The focus was using digital technology within EFL teaching named “Digital Superheroes in (and out of) the classroom”.
The digital workshop provides takeaway tips, advice and direction to get to grips with using technology in the classroom. With so much new technology it’s often difficult to keep track of everything. It’s a challenge to know how we can use the digital era to our advantage as educators and benefit our learners.
The extensive training course, organized and developed by the British Council consists of 30 units covering everything from mobile learning, social networking, game-based learning to personal learning networks, creating websites and cyber well-being. To discover more about how the British Council digital online and face-to-face course can support your teaching and provide new skills to become a digital superhero send a message to branka.Zaja@britishcouncil.hr.
