FINAL SPEECH

 

DAVID EVANS

 

David Evans is a writer, broadcaster and teacher trainer. He is the author of nineteen English language teaching books and is a past winner of the Duke of Edinburgh’s English Language Award. As a teacher, lecturer and teacher trainer, he has worked in more than forty countries. He also spent ten years as a radio producer for the BBC World Service and he is currently writing and producing a long-running ELT soap opera for the British Council for broadcast on local radio stations around the world.

 

BEYOND THE CARROT & THE STICK. MOTIVATING LEARNERS

 

For a long time, much thinking about motivation in the classroom and the workplace has been dominated by the carrot and the stick. Pass and fail grades. Promotions and demotions. Incentives and penalties. But, intuitively, many of us suspect that there are other – and better – ways to motivate both ourselves and our students.

So, in this talk, David Evans looks at how else we can make learning meaningful. He’ll talk about ways of developing learner autonomy, harnessing our inner drive and learning to embrace failure instead of fearing it. The talk will include references to several National Geographic Learning courses.

 

CONFIDENT CONNECTIONS

 

Public speakers and teachers have much in common. The both need to be able to command attention and engage with an audience, while putting their points across in a simple and compelling way. But the real key to success in both fields is to remember that it’s not just what you say, but the way that you say it.

So, in this presentation David Evans draws on research into what makes a successful TED speaker and applies those lessons to the classroom. He will discuss the importance of body language and talk about how we can control it. He will suggest ways of using voice and gesture more effectively, as well as proposing some ideas for overcoming nerves and boosting confidence. He will also draw on examples from the courses Keynote and 21st Century Reading, both produced by National Geographic Learning in association with TED Talks.

Primary Session

 

Don’t Be Scared: How to Make Students Comfortable in a Classroom

What’s keeping our students from speaking up in their English classes? Do your students spend most of the lesson with their mouths closed? They may actually know the answers you want, but they might be afraid to speak for a number of reasons. This seminar will look at some of the reasons that make students feel uncomfortable, and we’ll discuss how to make them feel good about speaking.

 

Secondary Session

 

Bringing Fun Into “Boring” Topics

Students are far more engaged, and they remember more, when they’re having a good time. But how can we make Maturita preparation, historical events, or classic literature seem fun? This seminar will give you tips on how to bring exciting, non-traditional elements into the English classroom, no matter what your topic. We’ll look at what makes a topic “boring” and offer general tips to bring more laughter and learning into any lesson.

Teaching without trying – Primary

 

Many of the best and most satisfying lessons come when the students are active themselves, and acting on their own initiative. This workshop will suggest a number of different ways to achieve this in the primary classroom. Participants can experience for themselves what should be enjoyable and teacher-friendly activities.
