Nowadays the job and role of the English language teacher has changed. It’s no longer our job to just teach grammar and vocabulary and the 4 traditional skills. We need to teach them about the world. We need to introduce them to new ideas, new ways of looking at things. And we need to teach them to be critical and creative 21st century thinkers. In this session, we’ll explore what we mean by creative thinking, why it’s important and how, using TED content, we can develop the next generation of creative and innovative thinkers.
