Presentation 1: Star Kids
We don't talk about intelligence anymore, we talk about intelligences. In this talk we will discuss the theory of multiple intelligences, and look at how it can be incorporated into your everyday classes. We will look at ways to motivate and stimulate your young learners as well as yourselves! The aim is to see how we can cater for our students many different needs including their all-important 'affective' needs. Hopefully there will be lots of fun and plenty of action, and a fistful of practical ideas for you to take back to use in your classrooms.

Presentation 2: Introducing Vocabulary with Kid's Box
Vocabulary is a key part of learning, but like any skill it is just one part of a whole. We know that communication is not about how many words you know - but what you do with them. Teachers need to be familiar with a range of key methods to help their students in remembering not just essential vocabulary, but how to use the vocabulary effectively and prepare well for the YLE Exam. In this workshop we will review the importance of learning in meaningful context, affective learning to enhance memory, multi-level activities and dynamic exercise for introducing and practicing vocabulary. We will also be looking at how specific activities prepare students and teachers for the YLE Exams to ensure that they pass with flying colors!
