100 ideas for exploiting activities, all for under 5 minutes of planning

June 3rd (12:00 - 13:00 local time Bucharest, Romania)

Do you want to do less planning? Do you want to get more out of your materials without doing more work? Then this workshop is for you!
While we might not quite cover 100 ideas, we will look at a whole range of different ways to exploit activities in both the online and offline classroom.
This will help you to add variety to your lessons and push your learners more. You're also welcome to add your own ideas in the chat so we can all learn from each other.

The Motivation Toolbox – engaging students from primary to teens

June 10th (12:00 - 13:00 local time Bucharest, Romania)

Have you ever found yourself in front of a room full of tired, bored and blasé teenagers? What about a group of over- or under-stimulated second graders? The challenges, though different, leave us struggling all the same – trying our best to entertain them, to get them to start (or stop) speaking, to make them show just a bit of appreciation for all the effort we've put into preparing this lesson for them.

If that depiction struck a nerve, you're definitely not the only one. In this session we're going to go through a range of activities which can easily be adapted to different levels, and which have the potential to persuade even the most reluctant student to participate in the lesson.
