Calling all ELT Footprinters! We’re sharing a survey which explores what teachers are doing in the classroom to promote environmental issues. The survey is headed up by Sarah Mercer and Nayr Ibrahim with the support of ELT Footprint and will be available until June 30. Please read on to find out how you can help!
We are thrilled to announce that our ELT Footprint community has been shortlisted for a British Council ELTon award for Innovation in Teacher Resources.
Ben Goldstein discusses the role of images in the ELT classroom, taking some key lessons from journalism and exploring how they can be applied to our teaching materials.
In our 10th post in the Greening ELT series, Noni Gilbert, one of the vice presidents of FECEI (the Spanish federation of private language schools) shares an upbeat and optimistic report from their recent annual national conference held in Madrid in February 2020.
The PEPELT (Picturebooks in European Primary English Language Teaching) team introduce their mission and suggest some fabulous children’s books for Earth Day on 22 April and World Book Day on 23 April.
A big thank you to the JALT(Japan Association for Language Teaching) Environmental Committee , Jennie Roloff Rothman (chair), Mark Brierley and Brent Simmonds for putting together this detailed and fascinating report on how they set about calculating the various aspects of conference organisation that contribute to the global carbon footprint of their national event in November 2019. A must-read for anyone looking to do the same with their event, ELT or otherwise.
