Using IT in Language Teaching


Dear members,

WATESOL is delighted to announce a special professional learning opportunity with a well-known international speaker on technology and languages.

On Saturday 15th June, Joe Dale will deliver a half-day presentation on how to use tools like Twitter, Audacity and Podomatic in the languages classroom.

Joe Dale is a popular conference presenter from the UK, where he writes for the Guardian (Education) and is a consultant for a number of bodies including the BBC and the British Council.  I will attach a summary of his current bio and links to his podcasts at the end of this email, for those who are interested.

We are co-hosting this event with the Modern Language Teachers’ Association and you need to get in quick as there are very limited places available for members of each association.  Please follow the RSVP instructions on the attached flier scrupulously!

If you miss out, don’t worry.  We hope the survey will help us plan more PD in this area.  So, as usual, feel free to drop me a line if you have any suggestions.
