The Connected Classroom -
Using Technology to Get Our Students Speaking

In this talk Russell will present some simple web 2.0 tools that we can use to get our students speaking both in and outside of the class. Web 2.0 offers us tools that students and teachers can use to record themselves speaking and then at a click of a button share the recordings by email or place in Moodle, a blog or a website. This is a great way to set up speaking tasks and activities with your students. Based on work being carried out at the University of Warwick, teachers can learn these tools in minute and make immediate use of his ideas. Russell will explain in the talk why he calls the presentation the "Connected Classroom". Whether you are a technophile or a technophobe this is a talk not to be missed.
