“Simple Past, Present Continuous: Future Perfect?"
Un evento exclusivo para docentes de Inglés de Educación Pública
It seemed to a lot easier back then (whenever 'then' was)! But now, suddenly, perhaps, it isn't. The
world is changing outside the classroom walls, and the classroom has to reflect these changes (as
classrooms always have). Does modern technology, perhaps, change the way that people can
learn (and we, as teachers, can help them do it)?
In short, does the world we live in – and the future we are heading for – presage seismic changes,
or are we merely rearranging the old pieces? The problem, of course, is that research doesn't help
very much. As Lightbown and Spada point out, there is so often a 'lack of greement amongst
experts' and different research makes different suggestions. Methods, as they point out end up just
being metaphors, and owe a lot to what society is saying about how life should be lead.

Yet the fundamental questions have not changed. Is the mind a computer in which, when language
is fed into it, learning takes place (think LADs and Krashen)? How much does explicit language
teaching help and what should students be asked to focus their attention on? What IS the role of
repetition and practice? And while we are about it, what kind of communication should really
happen in the classroom?
Questions, questions! But we need to find a way through the jungle of mobile devices, shifting
cultural tropes and methodological uncertainty. And that's what this talk will aim to do.
