Language Learning: Seven Steps to Critical and Creative Thinking

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Language is a problem-solving tool. Our first language impulses are about getting what we want. Much language education extends this simple function but, increasingly, language education involves thinking critically about the world and engaging with it in creative ways. In the ecosystem of language teaching and learning, there remain traditional connections among teachers, students, books, and assessments, but there are also new digital resources and paradigms to exploit them. This presentation explores how teachers can engage students in critical and creative thinking, fueling motivation and making learning more efficient and effective.
