DigiStoryLand: the New Face of Storytelling in ELT

Yuliia Kulyna & Kristina Yavnaya – Yuliia Kulyna (CELTA, Delta, LCCI FTBE, PTE Level 5 (C2) is an ELT enthusiast and a continuing development adept, having been in the industry for about 20 years in a variety of contexts. Her areas of responsibility include teaching, exam preparation, in-service teacher training, human resources management, quality control, academic consultations, curriculum and course design. She believes in life-long learning and is happy to share her experience with you.

Khrystyna Tsentsova has graduated from Odessa National University in 2012. One year later, while studying at East Normal University in Shanghai she was teaching English to teens and adults at English Language Private Schools. Since 2015 she has been working in OLSC and teaching English in different contexts as well as preparing students to PTE and Cambridge exams. As the OLSC cooperates with different IT companies, she also has been working with IT specialists. One year later she passed LCCI FTBE and started teaching Business English. In 2016 she did CELTA and became a PTE General and Young Learner Assessor. Last year she did DELTA (Modules 1, 2, 3).

Details about their workshop
We can use stories to present, study, practise and produce English in context.
The traditional storytelling may have a new face with the growing technology today: Digital Storytelling. This is one of the new twists of the technology.
With so many tools available you don’t even need to be good with technology as creating digital content is easier than ever before. Digital recorders and cameras are easy to use and there are many simple apps for audio and video recording.
All English language learners, young learners and adults, find digital storytelling activities stimulating and relevant.
In our session the participants will be provided with ideas to introduce storytelling in the classroom from an unusual perspective.
We are going to demonstrate how to design and organize creative activities and present our own developments of the concept.
The session is for those who teach teens and adults, though the material is adaptable and anyone interested would benefit from it.

How Do You Know They Know?

Chris Reese — A Delta-qualified English teacher and teacher trainer (CELTA / CELT-S), and has experience teaching General English, Exam Preparation, Business English, and Young Learners. He is also the co-author of Exam Booster ZNO, a coursebook for helping Ukrainian students prepare for their state school exams.
Details about his workshop
Very often, when we’re presenting new material to our students, it’s easy to make the assumption that learners “get it” because it’s “easy” — but how true is this statement? In this practical session, participants will examine and try out methods of making sure that their learners are keeping up with their lessons, and how to make sure the whole class understands what’s going on, in small, large, and very large classes.

Pronunciation Games as Warmers and Time Fillers

Daryna Luhovska — A Teacher Trainer and Teacher of English with 8 years of teaching experience. She is a regular presenter at Ukrainian and International ELT Conferences. Daryna holds a Bachelor Degree in English language, literature and translation; CELTA; Delta; TKT; IHCYLT and LCCI FTBE (Certificate in teaching business English). She works for Grade Education Center in the Teacher Training Department in Kyiv, Ukraine. Doing research on and teaching phonology is among her greatest passions. She believes that teaching is a creative process and whatever is learnt with pleasure will never be forgotten.

Details about her workshop
We usually help our students with some pronunciation while teaching systems (grammar and vocabulary) and there is some pronunciation work during delayed error correction. When students are tired, we tend to give them a fun, short activity to give them a little break and to wake them up. However, how often do we actually use pronunciation games to do so? The answer is (almost) never. Clearly, pronunciation is crucial, which means that practising it in class on a regular basis is as important as anything else we choose to teach in class. It is evident that we, teachers, and our students might not be ready for such changes. So, why don’t we start small and have short, fun, interactive, but at the same time such important, purposeful and effective pronunciation games starting from, say, tomorrow? In this practical workshop you will get a chance to try out many activities that will not only be fun warmers or time fillers, but will also help your students improve their pronunciation greatly.
