Title: What we talk about when we talk about interaction
Speakers: Lindsay Clandfield
Learner interaction. Interactive activities and games. Interactive software and interactive whiteboards. The word ‘interact’ and its various forms has been very popular in language education and especially in education technology. But as we are more and more surrounded by “interactive software”, does this still have the capability to motivate as much as when it was new? This workshop looks what we mean now by interaction, the kinds of interaction we are currently engaging in online and the implications for the classroom. This workshop will also include several fun activities I have done with learners on Whatsapp, Facebook and online forums.
