Our SEK Qatar Specialist Teacher, Ms. Maysa Taha, had the opportunity to present at the Teaching and Learning Forum on 22nd April 2017 held at the Qatar National Convention Centre.
The Teaching and Learning Forum is designed by Qatar Foundation’s Education Development Institute (EDI) to be one of the premiere teaching and learning conferences in the region. The aim is to select the most dynamic, innovative and effective presentations from the top education professionals. Aside from sharing practice, the aim of the conference is to inspire and motivate teachers to reach for the highest level of student engagement and achievement. To complement the teacher presentations, EDI invites the top international speakers and authors in the field of education to present keynote and featured presentations.
Ms. Maysa’s presentation addressed the issue of teaching Arabic for non-native students. The presentation shared teaching strategies that are used in our school and it revealed the importance of the integration of technology in communicating information.
It also included the general difficulties faced by the non-native Arabic language learners and the audience received a host of simple and practical ideas to make their lessons rich with communication and participation.
