Presentation Title:

Playing to learn with the multimedia generation

Abstract:

Children today seem to be changing the way they respond to stimuli and this affects the way they act in the classroom. We need to present challenging tasks that can help them play effectively and learn from this play to put them on the language ladder. This session will look at some of the techniques we can use to encourage and enhance young learners to help activate their language learning.
In this session we’ll be looking at some of the research into when to start exposing children to second languages, the differences between Younger Learners and Very Young Learners and some practical activities we can use at each stage of development. Along with this participants will have an understanding of game theory and how this can be applied to a YL classroom.
