Title : Bringing the world to your classroom – participation in international virtual exchanges
Type : Workshop (60 minutes)
Category : Keynote speech
Abstract : Do you want your students to interact with students from other countries but don't know how to organize that? Do you want your students to not only use English as an "academic" language but to use it in real-world communication? If the answer to these questions is "yes" then join this workshop to find out how your students can become part of one of the biggest language and culture learning groups in the world. The IVEProject is sponsored by the Japanese government and Muroran Institute of Technology and is free-of-charge for teachers to access with their students. Once they do, students can interact with students from other countries and use the language they are studying in class to communicate with real people in other countries in a safe environment. This workshop introduces the IVEProject which has had over 15,000 students and 200 teachers from 14 countries and 50 institutions in South America, Asia, the Middle East and Europe participating in exchanges over the last 3 years. Students interact online in English-as-a-lingua-franca using Moodle. Each exchange is 8-weeks long employing various tasks to encourage student interaction in addition to language and cultural development. You will learn how you and your students can participate in this workshop.
