Presented By: Kit Perry

Gone are the days of chalk and talk, and it seems increasingly likely that the days of the ubiquitous ELT textbook as the centre of the curriculum are also numbered. One fairly recent development which has the potential to replace some of the function of textbooks is BYOD (Bring Your Own Device). BYOD is gaining popularity in various educational contexts around the world and is likely to be a significant component of future directions in the ELT classroom by complementing the current curriculum model with a more fluid and multimodal approach to language learning. But what will the language classroom look like in a practical sense?
In my presentation Kit Perry will:
– Define the characteristics of today’s ELICOS students
– Examine a 21st-century language learning environment
– Explore BYOD in the language classroom including challenges and considerations
– Develop strategies for implementing BYOD in the language classroom
