Learning online may leave the students the feeling of isolated and unmotivated, which asks teachers to have more interactive activities in order to foster a sense of learning motivation among students. Ms. Ngoc Nguyen and Ms. Hien Ho, in this session, will share their expertise and experience of creating more effectively interactive lessons to help teachers increase student engagement as well as maximize student learning.
In this webinar, participants will be shown ways to deliver engaging synchronous online English lessons using different user - friendly Edtech platforms. Moreover, some advice on what teachers need to start teaching English online and a comparison of video conferencing platforms will be given with the audience members participating in interactive activities designed by those tools throughout the webinar.
