Shaun Wilden – “Making Digital Sense in the Classroom”

Reposted and edited from Shaun Wilden’s blog for Oxford University Press

This is a version of the talk I did at IATEFL on Saturday. The powerpoint is the same, I just sat and screen recorded myself this morning. It is about 30 minutes long as I edited bits and could not include the video clips I had in the talk. There is also a bit of a clumsy edit in part three for timing reasons. The websites I used for the talk follow the videos. Enjoy and if you have any questions feel free to leave me a comment.

We have asked top ELT authors the following 3 questions:

1. What’s your favourite ELT book?
2. What or who has had the biggest impact on ELT in the last 25 years?
3. What do you wish you’d known when you started out in ELT?

Here, Tom Hutchinson answers these questions in a short interview:

With Oxford University Press Tom has published New Hotline, Project, Lifelines, Lifetime Video, American Hotline, An Introduction to Project Work, Big City and the award-winning Project Video.

Your Thoughts

What do you think of Tom’s answers? Have you read either of the books he mentions, or can recommend others? Why do you think ELT course books get such a bad rep? Is there anything you wish you’d known when you started in ELT? Why not share your thoughts here.
