In this webinar I will ask whether images in the English language classroom and in English language teaching materials are currently being approached merely as an aid or support, or as a significant component of communicating in a foreign language and as a means of fostering students’ communicative competence and creativity. I will argue that teachers should use image critically and creatively, and encourage their students to resist the passivity that they may feel towards images.
I will refer specifically to content in the book The Image in English Language Teaching (ELT Council) that Daniel Xerri and I edited last year.”
