About this Event
In this workshop I will present games and stories that can be adapted to online teaching. During the presentation all participants will be encouraged to play the games proposed, so they can really put themselves in their students’ shoes.
People learn better by doing and experimenting. After playing, participants will analyze the use of these games and see how they can transfer them to their teaching practice. My goal is to MOVE TEACHERS BY MAKING THEM MOVE. Teachers will discover that their aim is not only to teach the language, but also to help students enjoy the process, and in this way become the “unforgettable teacher” we would all like to be.
