Cambridge English Language Teaching is hosting a three-day online festival for schools that asks the question 'what does a positive future look like for English language teaching beyond 2020?' The festival has been designed to create a positive mindset, a collaborative atmosphere and a space for voices to be heard. It will be live streamed from around the world on three ‘stages’, expert speakers will look to answer the big questions about the future of teaching and learning in schools globally. 

Students are becoming more and more aware of their social responsibility and will go to their schools and teachers with their questions and concerns. This festival is happening to help teachers develop their answers to those types of questions.

The festival will have three 'stages':

Big ideas - students know they will play a pivotal role in the future and they have questions, but do we have answers that are motivational and empowering? Those speaking will address the global issues that are at the front of our minds today and their impact on tomorrow.

Teacher takeaways - there will be a range of practical sessions focusing on the near future, providing activities and ideas that teachers can implement immediately into their lessons.

Backstage retreat - this will be the place to find all of those festival extras, like music, activities and food, in a virtual form.
