AFTV Tech it easy - Tech-tastic Teaching!

Posted 12 Apr

The AFTV is pleased to announce the return of the Tech It Easy workshops this year, a series of professional learning workshops dedicated to the use of tech in the classroom. The first in the 2024 series is the full day face to face workshop:

Tech-Tastic Teaching: Crafting Compelling Language Lessons with Technology.

Join us for an engaging and empowering professional development session tailored specifically for language teachers! Are you ready to unlock the potential of technology to enhance your teaching practices and foster inclusive learning environments?

In this dynamic session, we'll delve into the exciting world of technology integration, exploring innovative tools such as augmented reality (A.R), virtual reality (V.R), QR codes, green screens, and beyond. No prior tech expertise is required – just bring your enthusiasm and a willingness to think outside the box!

Get ready to be inspired and equipped with a host of practical ideas and strategies that you can immediately implement in your classroom. Our session will feature hands-on activities and collaborative discussions, so be sure to bring along your laptop and smartphone to fully participate.

Don't miss this chance to transform your teaching with a variety of tech-tastic activities and push yourself a little out of your tech comfort zone.  See you there!
