Getting Back to Basics: What to do with Young Learners when it all gets too much

If you’re watching this talk you’re probably a technology lover. This all-consuming, addictive fascination with the digital world can get in the way of some really important basics, especially with young learners. This unfashionably low-tech talk will look at some of these basics, vegetables, books, songs and things I have learned from my children in the past week or so. I will also talk a bit about Linked Language Learning and how we’re all in the same boat. It may become a trifle freeform. Apologies in advance.

Bio 

Following a number of enjoyable educational and career false starts, I moved to Japan in 1997 and spent 12 years there teaching English. During that time I became involved in writing materials for my younger students: early roots being Potato Pals and more recent sprouts including Everybody Up and Stars (OUP). I am quite passionate about Linked Language Learning and particularly keen to find out why the answer to many questions is just under one’s nose or slightly to the left.
