20 Tech Enhanced Activities for the Language Classroom – This ebook was designed to be the first in a series of collections of the simple activities and ideas I have used over many years when delivering teaching and teacher training sessions that incorporate the use of digital technologies.
The ideas use simple free tools that have stood the test of time and remained consistently reliable. The teaching ideas and activities themselves are ones that I have adapted from my pre-technology teaching days, so they are all built on sound classroom teaching practice.
Digital Tools for Teachers – This book has been written and designed primarily with English language teachers in mind though the majority of the resources and tools contained in the book will have much wider use than just language teaching.
The book contains more than 70 tools and resources and these have been hand picked because they represent a broad cross-section of what is at present available.
Thinking Critically through Digital Media – In a world where anyone with an internet connection can access, create and share information, opinions and beliefs, it has become increasingly important that students are not only able to assess the credibility of sources but also to look more deeply at the underlying motivations, beliefs and bias of the creator.
Thinking Critically through Digital Media enables teachers to use authentic materials and digital tools combined with motivating communicative tasks to develop students’ abilities to function as critical and well informed digital citizens.
Exploiting Infographics – This ebook was designed with English language teachers in mind but should have some value for any teacher who is interested in developing their students’ digital literacy and critical thinking skills.
The book contains a wide range of suggested activities for both the creation and exploitation of infographics in the classroom.
It also helps teachers with tips and advice on how to plan and create infographics and suggestions for which tools to use to produce different types of infographic.
Digital Video – A Manual for Language Teachers – This book is the 2016 winner of the British Council ELTons Award for Innovation in Teacher Resources.
10 Lessons in Digital Literacy – This book is a collection of ten lesson plans that develop students’ abilities to think more critically, research and discuss online information.
