Preparing Your EFL/ESL Students for the Future With Digital Literacy and Technology Skills

About this event

If COVID taught the world anything, it was the power of technology and just how many digital tools are at our disposal. But, how do we use these tools responsibly and effectively? At the heart of 21st-century skills, digital literacy tackles how to utilize technology to research, create, and communicate appropriately, both in a professional capacity and in one’s personal life.

This session explores how teachers can incorporate digital literacy into their classrooms to improve language proficiency and lead students to personal and career success.
