As with all our courses, the Interact! online course is very practical. We use project-based-learning, so that everything you do on the course is in a language-teaching context, allowing you to apply it immediately to your classroom. Our highly experienced tutor, Seth Dickens, will follow you right the way through the course, as well as helping to keep you and your colleagues collaborating together to develop new skills and ideas. Each module of the course will give you clear lesson and project ideas which you can try out with your own students. The course is six weeks long and in addition to learning about IWBs, you’ll also study several other exciting technologies to enable you to truly connect your students with the outside world.
- Week 1 – Introductions & Class-based Communicative Online Activities
- Week 2 – Online Surveys and Google Apps for Education
- Week 3 – Interactive White Boards (IWBs)
- Week 4 – E-Twinning and Skype
- Week 5 – Digital Literacies & The Latest Technologies Useful to Teachers
- Week 6 – Personal Learning Networks (PLNs)

This eight-week “blended learning” course, our first to be delivered in collaboration with Pete Sharma Associates will help language teachers learn practical ways to use IWBs, apps and other technologies with their students.
Which Technologies Should I Learn First?
We have chosen a selection of the most-effective, apps, websites and programs and designed our course to show teachers several practical, lesson-focused ideas and activities for each. This means you don’t have to do the hard work of trying to decide which technology is worth learning, and which isn’t.
We are offering this course as part of our brand-new collaboration with Pete Sharma Associates, so you can be confident that all the materials have been prepared to the highest pedagogical standards. More importantly still, you can be sure that all the activities you will learn are directly relevant to your learners, or to you as a teacher.
