The challenge of bringing students’ real life into the classroom

In this  session, Gustavo will briefly share some ideas on how important it is to bring students’ real life into our classes. In order to effectively do so, we (teachers) must take into account the kind of students we have today and what their interests are. We must agree that social media (a group of Internet-based applications that allow the creation and exchange of user-generated content, such as Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp, Youtube, etc) are becoming stronger and stronger and our students are “residents” of this world.
Let’s “visit” them at their place and include some of these formats in our classes. This will allow our students to use English meaningfully and purposefully, and we will be contributing to bringring their real life into the classroom.
