From the IATEFL LT SIG:
The IATEFL LT SIG would like to invite you to join the ‘Virtual Pre-Conference Event’ (VPCE) at http://iatefl-ltsig.ning.com/
There are 6 weeks left before the 44th annual IATEFL conference in Harrogate, UK and in the run-up to the conference, we have decided to hold a ‘Virtual Pre-Conference Event'(VPCE)
The focus of the Pre-Conference Event (PCE) this year at the IATEFL conference is to consider where we are in the field of learning technologies and language learning and where we might be going. Have we reached a time when learning technologies are a ‘normalised’ part of our practice or is there still some way to go? Are there any predictions we can make about the future?
We have asked three people – Stephen Bax, Scott Thornbury and Mark Pegrum – to help us on April 7th with short focused presentations during the day at various points to seed the debate. Stephen and Scott will be in Harrogate, Mark will be online.
Before then, the VPCE will be examining where we are now, with 6 weeks of discussions and practical ideas involving on how to use Web 2.0 tools in your classroom.
