О конференции
If you want to get your students to use English in class, it all boils down to motivation.

Motivation is a key concept in foreign language learning for any age group, but teaching a class of teenagers can sometimes be extra challenging when it comes to keeping their focus on the lesson itself.

As a teacher of teenage English learners, you expect your students to use the language in constructive ways. At this online conference we will take a deeper look at what affects motivation, and you will you learn some valuable tips to help increase it in your students.

Building Self Confidence in Teens: Activities with Purpose

This webinar looks at motivational activities to use in order to build a positive and empowering teenage classroom.
I have been working almost exclusively with teenagers for the past three years and the results have been highly positive thanks to a combination of life coaching techniques, listening skills and most importantly, materials with purpose. This workshop will show teachers how familiar and relevant teenage topics such as selfies and pizza can be easily transformed into engaging and exciting activities that empower and challenge teenagers. Furthermore, it aims to prove that helping students to reflect on mistakes and procrastination in a positive fashion is actually a way of giving them permission to be themselves.
Participants will go back to their teenage classes armed with engaging tasks and positive vibes, ready to inspire and be inspired. It is time to teach the teens, not the course book..

The five triggers of intrinsic motivation

"You can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink," a famous proverb says. The same happens in your classrooms every day. Students are inside the room but without motivation and engagement the information you give, can't be learned. Marks and bonuses can help for sometime, but their magic is not permanent. It seems that we need some magic spells (a range of techniques) to increase inner motivation. I will talk about 5 universal motivational triggers. A combination of at least some of these triggers works magic during the lessons. You will see your students working hard, enjoying their learning, making progress and above all in flow.

To play or not to play

If you have a look at coursebooks for primary schools and attend workshops on teaching young learners, it's all about fun and games. But as soon as our students go from primary to secondary school we as teachers also switch to a new mode. With exams and tests ahead teachers focus on "serious" stuff, "we are not clowns, we don't have to entertain them all the time."

Games are then used as time consumers or amusing activities to spice up the lesson and motivate students to attend our lessons.

But why don't we regard games as an integral part of the lesson? In reality games and fun are more complex things than many of us think.

In my talk I'll demonstrate how to implement games into your lessons properly and give a step-by-step guide that provides a structure for a gamified lesson: both motivational and efficient.

Please Think Responsibly: Teen Gasoline

Today's teens are tomorrow's adults, but they are also yesterday's children. Crossing the challenging terrain between childhood and adulthood is no easy task, as we all know, but allowing our teenagers to have more responsibility and self-ownership can really boost motivation and subsequent performance. During this webinar, I'll briefly discuss the science and psychology behind this concept; then introduce several simple and practical ways in which we as English teachers can help to release our teenage learners' potential by putting them in the driving seat to direct their own learning progress.
