You will take away with you sound activities and ideas that you can use directly in your classrooms.

    The Macmillan team will be there to give you a warm welcome and will present our new materials.

    This year attendance of the Macmillan Teachers Day will be officially certified by the Universitat de Barcelona.

    Tom SpainTom has been teaching English for over 20 years and has spent the last

    15 years at the British Council in Madrid designing and teaching courses

    for learners of all levels. He is fascinated by the themes of motivation and

    group dynamics and, because of this, likes to use a more personalised

    methodology in the classroom. Tom enjoys finding and/or adapting

    authentic materials for use with students and is a big fan of technology as

    a useful tool for helping learners.

    Simon wardSimon is a Senior Practitioner Educational Psychologist in England where

    his specialism is positive behaviour and well-being. For a number of years,

    Simon has been running a variety of projects to develop the attitudes, skills

    and experiences which allow individuals and organisations to thrive and

    lead to success and achievement. As a regular trainer, he has delivered

    seminars on a range of topics including: motivation and learning, positive

    behaviour management and solution oriented approaches.

    Barcelona since 1999. He believes technology should only be used in the

    language classroom if its easy; doesnt take up a lot of time; doesnt get

    in the way of language learning; and does actually lead to learning.

    Plenary Sala Paranimf

    Simon ward Positive behaviour managementIn this highly interactive session, teachers will be encouraged to reflect on

    their skills in managing behaviour in the classroom Areas to be covered

    include: creating the climate, planning for good behaviour, teacher

    response styles, re-direction techniques, the language of discipline and

    challenging students. The session will explore practical, positive and

    creative strategies for developing classroom management skills.

    ROOM 1 ESO

    M Jess Pramo The secrets in the mix In this session, we look at how to identify mixed ability in the secondary

    classroom and provide strategies for dealing with it efficiently and

    effectively. We will take into consideration the setting of rules; the

    organising of groupwork and co-operative learning and working with

    different materials. We will also consider aspects of evaluation and self-

    evaluation with mixed-ability groups. Some of this session will be illustrated

    with video footage of students from 4 ESO.

    Jade Stevens Together everyone achieves more!Language learning requires many forms of interaction in which

    communication and collaboration with others is essential. By engaging in

    collaborative learning, students not only get to interact with others on a

    common task, but they also get to pool and capitalize on one anothers

    knowledge and skills. Collaborative learning techniques can help us build

    teams and contribute to a necessary positive learning environment in which

    learners can thrive to become confident learners, language learners and

    individuals. In this session, a range of collaborative learning techniques to

    create a positive learning environment will be demonstrated.

    ROOM 2 Batxillerat

    Kieran Donaghy Short and sweet: using short films to promote creativity and communication

    In this hands-on workshop well explore how short films can be used in the classroom. Well look at how we can use short films to promote creativity, and both oral and written communication by doing communicative activities based around a variety of short films. The session will be very practical and involve a lot of teacher participation. Teachers will come away with practical activities to use with their own students.

    Tom Spain Creative homeworkIve been experimenting with homework tasks for some time now. The goal is to try and link the tasks to students interests and hobbies and in that way to actively encourage learner autonomy. We also have regular sharing and feedback in the classroom. Therell be lots of ideas to try out!

    ROOM 3 EOIs & Private Language Schools

    Steven Muir Telly learning In this practical workshop we will look at a range of classroom activities inspired by clips from film, TV and YouTube. These activities focus on a variety of language areas and skills, and can be adapted to use with many other clips. Most importantly, students seem to enjoy them!
