IATEFL Pre-Conference Event (April 2010)
Here's a series of shots taken from Second Life during the IATEFL LT SIG Pre-Conference event. It was held in the Avalon sim on April 7th and was organized by Graham Stanley (Baldric Commons). This pre-conference aimed at reflecting on where technology use is in the language classroom and where we are heading to. Three well-known and excellent speakers were invited: Mark Pegrum (Kane Illios), Scott Thornbury and Stephen Bax. Mark Pegrum started his talk on multiliteracies. Next up Scott Thornbury talked about teachers feeling threatened by technology since this bring about fundamental changes in teachers' roles. Last but not least, Stephen Bax and his presentation on the normalisation of technology.
