The Colombo Symposium 2017:

Teachers are IN: 75 years of INnovative,
INspiring teaching

KEYNOTE: Back to Pedagogy: INspired Teaching with Technology

AbstractTeachers are IN, and with that, pedagogy is IN. Now that online, mobile, and blended learning are ubiquitous, it is time for teachers to refocus their efforts on integrating this technology into a comprehensive approach to create environments where everyone has a voice. As the NMC Horizon Report: 2017 Higher Education Edition claims, “Fluency in the digital realm is more than just understanding how to use technology” (p. 2). Thus, in this presentation, the speaker will show how technology can be used to not only inspire and support students in 21st century pedagogies, skills, and literacies but also fit into the curricular framework of the Four-Strands Model (Nation and Macalister, 2010). Through examples, the presenter will show how teachers can leverage technology in order to provide their learners with meaning-focused input, meaning-focused output, language-focused learning, and fluency development. The presenter will illustrate tools and projects for the different language areas as well as for collaborative learning in blended, flipped, or online contexts.
