We are now recording.
Just the first part
yes but task a only
Yes reading and viewing. And of course played a few in RPG group
I play a lot of RPGs and use it with my students, mostly Monster of the Week, Call of Cthulhu etc.
The webinar is available in LTSIG YouTube channel
No sorry - I only knew about this an hour ago.

Hello from Bangladesh
I do more board games, but many of them have a storytelling aspect.
Just to let you know we have disabled videos / mics while the presentation is happening.
Besitos Heike.. :)
hi everyone, what could have happened?
Hi Vera :D
hi Laura :)))
Looking at his work.. going through his albums.
reorganising his 'negatives'.
the tax man?
The ones in his master photo..
She wanted another photo of her family.
she wants him to delete all copies ?
She got divorced and can't stand seeing the picture!
well guessed, Doris.
Her husband died
He feels sorry and he understands.. finally he takes it away.
you could also use Zoom polls to get Ls to vote on options in the story
Yes, you could, Laura.
But you would lose the speaking element
true… hard to justify just one volunteer speaking in big classes though
yes, I would use breakout rooms with very small groups
yes once they get the idea of how it works that would definitely be the best way
I've often wanted to escape a family function ;-)
which levels is this appropriate for?
arrange a phone call on your mobile phone, old trick
Graham said B1- B2
He suggested B1/B2
ok thank you!
keep your questions coming... hopefully we will have some time for a Q&A at the end.
I like the briefing idea + the expressions they might need to use
Disappearing green sticks. That could be itself in itself... magic wands
The idea of different characters with different "missions" reminds me of board games where different characters have different "win conditions" e.g. Chaos in the Old World
That was me! My parrot!
I don't know which one I like more... I love them both
It's definitely a great way of keeping students engaged and gives them a reason to use the language

Thursdays 7pm UK time
We can open your mic..
or ask them here.
how can we assess the students during this activity?
That's briliant. Thank You so much
We can add it to the LTSIG blog post
Maybe some of the activities can be scaffolded so that they can be used in mixed ability classes
James Egerton's game Princess in the Tower is quite suitable for lower levels
Slides available here: https://www.slideshare.net/bcgstanley
But you can use original RPG and use mainly mother tongue + English, especially with kids, they can meet NPC that can only speak English
Have you ever tried using "Choose Your Own Adventure" books with learners? They have a very similar concept but apply it to another skill (reading).
I still have some of those, Laura. I remember David Dodgson writing about them, too.
We did one as a whole class week course and it was a lot of fun
(lots of activities built around it)
What brand of readers was that Vicky? I missed the name!
Even simple alternation of student contribution would add interactivity to Choose your own adventure
Hi Minnie :-)
Thanks! Great tips.

Sounds amazing and ots of fun.Can you repeat the name of the Richmond reader?
Great ideas/example. Thanks, Laura.
Awesome! Thanks Laura and Graham!
Yes they do the Dresden Files RPG
Laura, have your played it?
The Dresden Files one? No, I have the books but never had a group interested in it since sadly
Laura, I have both played and GMastered, so maybe we'll give it a go some time?
(sorry I am super excited now)
Apologies, I'll have to leave as I have a class now. Thank you very much Graham for the ideas in the webinar :)
Thank you Raquel!
Brilliant :D I love urban fantasy tbh and Monster of the Week is great for TEFL
Recording of this will be made available by tomorrow.
We are going to have another webinar on 29th August - so look out on social media for more details nearer the time. :-)
I'm happy to be here and learn something. Thank you
Thank you all so much
Wonderful work, Graham and all.
Agreed, this has re-inspired me!
Thanks for the great ideas! =)
Thanks to the SIG for putting it all together for us.
Thank you very much for lovely and useful Saturday!
Thank you Graham! Plenty to think about, as ever
Great ideas! Lots of ideas going though my mind right now
Thanks, meet you on a FB group
