講者簡介 (Presenter Profile)
Ivan Sorrentino is the ELT and Education Marketing Director, Asia for Cambridge University Press. Despite graduating from Cambridge University with studies concentrating on chemistry and maths, in 2001 a turning point changed his vista on life and he changed his life focus towards languages.
He taught English in Spain for 2 years and Japan for over 4 years before moving into the publishing industry. Originally starting as a sales representative in 1999, becoming the Japan ELT sales manager in 2004, he transitioned to a marketing role across Asia in 2008.
Ivan’s interest in language learning cover a wide variety of areas such as vocabulary, syntax, and prag-matics, motivation and identity, and language development. He approaches these aspects of language from a mix of perspectives – as a learner, a user, a teacher, and a parent, in addition to his professional in-volvement in materials
Practicing what he preaches, he currently speaks five languages.
講座議題 (Presentation Topic)
21st century students, classrooms and materials
Over the last 10 to 20 years, the only thing that seems to have remained consistently true is that the rate of change keeps increasing! In the first session the presenter will look at where we are – who are the students in our classroom, what do they want and why do they want it? Given the digital “nativeness” of current students, he will look at a variety of technologies available and consider ways to exploit them in an educational or classroom setting. Finally he will look at print components, and the changing role they perform. This will set the context for understanding where we are now and how we got here. The presenter will illustrate the points above using examples from the newly published Interchange 5th edition.
21st century workplace and skills
As back as 2014, people were estimating that fifty percent of current jobs would no longer exist in the world of 2025. While we can always point to the more extreme headlines as mere “clickbait” – exaggerated words to draw readers in to an article, the fact of the matter is that the world is changing and a key part of all educators is to help students equip themselves with the right skills to enter the workforce (or improve their situation once they have entered it). But what are these 21st century skills, why are they important and how do we teach them? The presenter will illustrate the points above using examples from the newly published Interchange 5th edition.
