10 October Global Goals Teacher Development World Cities Day October 31st

October 31st World Cities Day

How could we mark the occasion in our language classes? It seems very relevant as many of us work in cities, teaching students who live in cities and while it is true that the environmental impact of cities is huge, it’s also the case that many solutions to this issue are likely to come from cities.

Why not watch this video in which I give an overview of a lesson based on Global Goal 11, Sustainable Cities and Communities, always a good place to start for this topic. Oh, students will also work on their collaborative literacy, a key digital literacy. What more could you need?

Remix Literacy

Remix literacy can be a powerful tool for casting a new light on things, and it definitely merits a place in the ELT classroom, and beautifully complements a focus on serious global issues. Goal 15: Life on Land, is a highly accessible goal for people as we are all aware of the need to protect and restore the terrestrial environment around us.

Find out how to bring these into your class with this video:

Goal 4: Quality Education

How can we use the Global Goals in language teaching? How can we also use them as a context to help learners develop their digital literacies? Last year I explored this for an MA assignment, and I’m going to share teacher training materials that address these questions. Let’s start with Global Goal 4: Quality Education and Information Literacy. Watch the training video and try out the lesson with your classes, and let me know how it goes!
