Jamie Keddie is a teacher trainer, writer and presenter who has shared his ideas with teachers /educators all over the world. His areas of interest include image, video, video camera & storytelling in the classroom. He founded lessonstream.org, and is the author of ‘Images’ (OUP 2009), ‘Bringing online video into the classroom’ (OUP 2014) and ‘Videotelling’ (2016). Jamie is an associate trainer at Norwich Institute for Language Education. His workshops will be about:
The Teacher as Storyteller. Teacher-led storytelling is often associated with young learners. But we are considering a classroom art which is far too versatile and valuable to be connected with one group alone. In this series of workshops, I would like share tasks/techniques that allow us to turn a short story into a whole-class discussion with learning opportunities along the way. Some stories are based on video narratives – often referred to as 'Videotelling'.
Peter Dyer has worked in Australia as a professional actor and has appears in many TV series and films and done radio and voice work. He is a graduate secondary teacher in Drama and Media Arts and has worked for Pilgrims in Canterburg for over 20 years as a teacher trainer in drama methodology and improvisation in the language classroom.
Creative Teaching. Participants do some group coordination activities to build cohesion & confidence. Then there will be simple improvisation activities to encourage our students to want to speak & these can be adapted for writing too. We will develop our listening/communication skills & free our creative/imaginative forces to help students too.
