“Inspiring the Next Generation of Scientists and Explorers” ~ Joe Grabowski: National Geographic Explorer
OVERVIEW OF JOE’S SESSION
As educators, we strive to bring meaningful and relevant learning experiences to our students each day, to connect the dots between what we’re teaching and how it applies to the real world. Join educator and National Geographic Explorer Joe Grabowski as he shares the story of the unexpected turn his education career took when he began engaging his students through the stories and adventures of scientists and explorers around the world. Dive into the exciting resource that can have your students virtually exploring outside their classroom walls within the week and learn tips and tricks for engaging your students before and after these unique experiences.
“Bringing the real world to your classroom made as easy as ABC” ~ Mari Nakamura: Educator and founder of MELEP
OVERVIEW OF MARI’S SESSION
In this rapidly changing and interconnected world, it is critically important for us to nurture children’s curiosity for diverse cultures as well as to promote their language skills. How can we make this happen in EFL classrooms in which instruction time is extremely limited? In this presentation Mari will demonstrate how to make every step of language learning, from vocabulary building to self-expression, stimulating for young minds by tapping into their natural curiosity for the world around them.
At the end of Mari’s session, David White (National Geographic Learning) will share an overview of our exciting new 7-level series for young learners Imagine. Imagine makes it simple to introduce curious young learners to the world and everything in it with step-by-step language presentation and structured practice that give children the English they need.
SPECIAL OFFER!! All attendees will receive a free teaching puppet* and a chance to win one of these great prizes! Register today!
