As teachers and educators we always want the best for our learners. We want them to be successful both in school and in life and to become good global citizens. The question is, how can we foster the knowledge, the skills, the awareness that they need to be able to make an impact on the world, all the while developing their English skills? Simply put, by inspiring them. And what better way to inspire them than with National Geographic Explorers? Using examples from the National Geographic Learning teen series Time Zones and Impact, in this session we’ll look at how reading, watching and learning about National Geographic Explorers can not only develop our students’ English language skills, but also inspire them onto greater things.
