Recent revisions of Cambridge English Examinations have placed particular emphasis on a steady
progression from one language level to the next. Some students seem to lose confidence on the final leg
of the language learning route to proficiency. This session will suggest how we can help bridge the gap
from FCE to CPE by building relevant skills in English Language classes.
16.30 – 17.20 THE TEACHER AS DIGITAL CURATOR
Professional Marisa Constantinides, Dip.RSA, M.A. App Ling, DCS - INTERNATIONAL PUBLISHERS EXHIBITIONS
Presentation Curating content may well be the latest online trend. Because most of the tools are also social
networking tools, curating is a great first step to get connected with other like-minded teachers from
around the world. This talk will outline steps to discover great content online, organize and save it for
future use (curation) by showing some great bookmarking and curation tools. I also hope to share some
ideas on how to evaluate, create or co-create your own content (creation) and how to share it with your
colleagues or your learners.
