The workshop was held on 26 March 2019 at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität as part of the TEFL Day within the context of the international conference "Educating the global citizen: International perspectives on foreign language teaching in the digital age".
19 German teachers from primary, secondary and vocational schools and a few international participants (from Sweden, Mexico, Colombia and Brazil) took part.
The workshop began with a presentation and an exploration of the Inventory of ICT tools and open educational resources (e.g. Mentimeter, Google Slides, Google Sites, Google Docs, Wheel Decide, Padlet). Then, through a series of activites, teachers were asked to critically evaluate various tools for language teaching and for promoting global citizenship. Finally, they developed ideas about how the presented tools could be integrated into their individual teaching contexts.
The participants gave very positive feedback and highlighted that they will put their newly gained knowledge into practice in their respective teaching contexts.
