In order to adapt to an ever-changing world, young learners need not just language skills, but also future skills. In this session, we look at how developing critical thinking skills, collaboration, creativity, literacy, flexibility and social skills can help prepare children for future success. We give practical tips using examples from the new primary course Team Together and discuss how Pearson English International Certificate Young Learners tests these vital future skills.
Join our experts to learn how to construct a powerful teaching and assessment program for young learners, which engages young minds while getting great, measurable results. Big English and English Benchmark Young Learners have been designed to work hand-in-hand – to teach, test and remediate in one smooth, interconnected system, underpinned by the Global Scale of English and a pedagogical approach that truly motivates and inspires.
There is a growing understanding of the role that stories can play in learning English. Stories are highly enjoyable, and used correctly, they provide young learners with language input at the right level, they promote opportunities for interaction, and they build skills in all four areas: reading, listening, speaking, and writing. Furthermore, themes in stories can build critical thinking skills, and allow learners to explore their values and their place in the world.
In this webinar, Rachel discusses why and how stories can improve language skills and future skills, and how familiar stories and characters can increase motivation to read.

We're starting the conversation about sustainability as understood by different organizations - Pearson and the BBC - and discussing the common goals we share: supporting learners and educators around the world to communicate and speak out for a more sustainable future.
Curious about teaching STEAM? Join Sarah Hillyard's English Code STEAM lesson walk-through! In a science and engineering experiment about toys that sink and float (Level 1), Sarah will walk you through the lesson and concentrate on the most essential steps for you to deliver successful STEAM lessons.
There are lots of misconceptions about STEAM. When language teachers hear the words “coding”, “algorithm”, “technology”, “engineering” it can sound overwhelming… daunting… even scary. It’s not about teaching a science lesson, or a maths lesson, instead, it’s about integrating an array of concepts that are built into these subjects while teaching English. This session will debunk some myths and reveal the truth behind them through practical examples (from English Code). Doing STEAM is simpler than you think!
The mission of this webinar is to share ways in which English language primary teachers can help children become future-ready by using STEAM. Learners need to start developing transferable abilities at an early age. Skills such as problem-solving, effective communication, team-building and creativity will be needed in an unknown future of rapid change. (STEAM projects from English Code will be used to exemplify).
John Hattie claims that there are some teachers doing some things that make the difference. If you keep wondering what teaching strategies can make your online lessons more effective and impactful, learn more in this webinar, focused on Online Teaching Methodology ESAP. Magda Kania presents some practical tools and ideas that will help you: - organize your online lesson - engage your students from the very first minute of your online lesson - increase your students’ interaction - ensure that learning outcomes are achieved.
This webinar is designed to help you feel more confident teaching using flipped learning. We look at how to flip your classroom for the first time with tips on what to tell your students and/or their parents. We also look at how to plan for a few different lesson shapes: from vocabulary lessons to lessons that include video and social media posts. Finally, we discuss student motivation and how we can support all of our learners all of the time.
In this webinar you take part in a STEAM investigation about the techniques that confident STEAM teachers possess.
We look at the role of the teacher, the impact of questioning techniques and other skills and instructional strategies that will help you carry out STEAM experiences in your language classroom successfully. Self-reflection and sample STEAM projects are used to highlight these ideas and, hopefully, build your own confidence!
