Both tests are hosted on a new platform, Test Hub, which supports lifelong learning by bringing together all proficiency assessments under one roof.

Educational expert Darren Nicholls will show how the Benchmark Test carries on where English Benchmark Young Learners leaves off, by introducing rich reports that leverage mapping to Pearson courseware – to better focus teaching and allow students to take ownership of their out-of-school learning.

How to…help learners chart their own course towards English proficiency

speaker: Dr Bill Bonk   

Many learners seek opportunities outside the classroom to practice and improve their skills. The methods they choose vary from more traditional (studying vocabulary, reading) to more innovative (videos, interacting through video calls or chat, etc). However these activities can occur without structure and without learners’ awareness of what they might get out of them. Students can always use guidance for how to coordinate these activities and how to use them best, given their proficiency level.

In this webinar, Bill Bonk takes a look at how teachers can leverage these student-driven activities as well as use tools like the GSE Teacher Toolkit to help students chart their own course towards English proficiency, based on their own needs and current level.

How to better assess language skills using artificial intelligence with David Booth

Traditional assessments use a range of methods to assess language skills. These methods are becoming more and more obsolete as technology changes the way language is tested. One change is the introduction of integrated skills assessment. Integrating skills is commonplace in teaching methodology but strangely absent from testing. Technology, however, enables us to use more effectively the texts and questions we present to test takers. At the same time the automated scoring of speaking and writing responses has become common place using artificial intelligence and scoring algorithms. This webinar will look at the latest innovations in language testing and how these are implemented across a range of test taking contexts.

How to focus on personalisation (without getting personal) with Vaughan Jones

In a career of over twenty years writing ELT coursebooks, my co-author and I have always strived to produce materials that motivate, make language learning memorable and, above all, promote meaningful exchanges - with an emphasis on personalisation and the role it can play in classrooms full of 16-18 year-olds. We have always been advocates of tasks and activities that tap into the students’ own life experience and give them the opportunity to speak or write about their own thoughts, feelings or emotions. Are we right? In this webinar, I will take a fresh look at the whole area of personalisation and compare and contrast personalised activities with non-personalised activities.

Taking Care of Your Students

“If you do something for your students, then your students will do something for you.”

A good lesson is a place where the learning process takes place. Students leave a standard or an online classroom with the feeling of accomplishment and progress.

The Gift of Growth Mindset with Rachael Roberts

Learning to walk is not easy. Most children fall over plenty of times. But they rarely tell themselves that this is because they aren’t good at walking, or that they’ll never learn to walk so they may as well not try. Teenagers, however, tell themselves this kind of thing all the time. They have often lost the natural confidence and motivation to learn they had at primary school, and additionally, they may be worried about losing ‘face’ in front of their peers. If we can help our students to shift out of this kind of ‘fixed’ mindset and allow themselves to see challenges and even mistakes as a positive thing, we are giving them a gift which will help them to gain motivation, a sense of control over their own learning and ultimately greater success in school, and in later life. In this session we will explore practical ideas and activities to enable students to shift their mindset, take responsibility and build self-confidence.

Mentoring and Moulding the Modern Teenager with Phil Warwick

The days when language learning was just a memory exercise are long gone, we don’t need to create a generation of producers when we have machines that can do it far better than us. Instead we need to foster the creative, nurture the communicative and grow the individual. This is no mean feat, and in order to equip our students with the skills they need to succeed in the modern world, we should use materials that focus on life and career competencies that not only help the students pass exams but also transfer into the workplace and their future lives.
