This resource includes a recording and the PPT for the following workshop:
This workshop will focus on different ways teachers can use the digital world to create units of work or stand alone classes that will enhance English skills and knowledge at Years 7-10. In particular, this workshop will look at these common digital texts– short films, blogs, podcasts, web pages and emails. The workshop will demonstrate how to teach students to create and analyse these text types for the English classroom. As a further part of this session, teachers will be provided with practical thinking routines and scaffolds for teaching students to think critically about the quality and reliability of different websites and digital texts.
