Please note, this workshop has been postponed, and may be rescheduled in webinar format. As schools continue to struggle with CRT shortages, we are experiencing lower than usual registrations for face-to-face events.

Part of our Back to Professional Learning Together series, this 2-4pm afternoon workshop is for teachers able to dip their toes back into face-to-face PL in Term Two 2022.

Digital technology can give English teachers options that they never had before. Digital tools allow students to engage with material in a new and different ways. It can be used to provide more variety and transparency on assessment tasks.

Carolyn and Catherine will provide English teachers with a range of examples and demonstrate how technologies can be integrated into the English classroom.
