★ Live Facebook Broadcast ★

This week we held another Facebook Live broadcast with a special focus on teaching online.

The Facebook Live broadcast was held on Wednesday 11th March at 10.30am UK time on the British Council TeachingEnglish Facebook. If you couldn’t join us live or you don’t use Facebook you can watch a recording of the broadcast on this step. You can also find a recording of the video on Facebook here.

Thanks to everyone who posted questions for the educators on step 2.6 and to everyone who joined us live. The educators and Facebook live participants gave some great suggestions for teachers who might be new to teaching online and we’ve created this step with links to resources to help teachers who are in this situation.

Please add your comments and ideas below.
