Great Digital Expectations: falling in love with Dickens on a Friday afternoon



How do you engage a reluctant reader with the whole of Great Expectations? How can reading 19th-century non-fiction ever possibly be fun on a rainy Monday? Why is English relevant to a student with dreams of working in finance?

Join Helen Cunningham, Publishing Director at Cambridge University Press, and Jonathan Swift, Managing Editor of Education Today, to hear how using digital in the GCSE English classroom can engage and inspire students.

Highlighting CUP’s innovative new digital resources to help bring GCSE fiction and non-fiction to life in the classroom, the webinar will include plenty of practical suggestions for using video, audio and gaming in the classroom to engage English students and help prepare them for success at GCSE, drawing on content produced by CUP – created by teachers for teachers and tried and tested by students.
