Summer fun

Posted by Illya on 18 June 2013

After a long stretch of cold, wet weather, summer has started!

The digital storytelling workshop is blossoming into wonderful stories and ideas, and soon all will be out and living their own stories away from teaching English. Stories aren’t jsut for kids. Don’t we all love a good one? And they can be powerful if used thoughtfully for business English or other specific Englishes. One of the reasons why is that a good story is often based on a problem, and solving problems are a driving source of communication.

You can read more about digital storytelling in the ETAS journal or, f you are interested in looking into digital storytelling while hiding away from the heatwave, below are a couple of websites to browse.

Digital storytelling at ETAS

Posted by Illya on 15 May 2013

If you are an ETAS member and interested in digital storytelling, then head on over to the ETAS website (e-tas.ch) and have a look at the Events (external). Or you can sign up directly with the learning technology SIG coordinator (that’s me! see below).
If you aren’t an ETAS member and are interested, then also head over to the ETAS website and become one. Alternatively you can pay the fee of 100.- for the course, albeit without the ETAS membership goodies such as the ETAS Journal, and reduced fees for the events.
I’d love to see you at the course!
