2694IATEFL LTSIG PCE -Come and join us in Second Life on Wednesday April 7th
- Apr 5, 2010Hi everyone.
Apologies for cross-posting. I thought that some of you might be interested
in our upcoming event in Second Life:
Come and join us live from Harrogate and in Second Life at AVALON Learning (
http://slurl.com/secondlife/AVALON%20Learning/98/52/36) on Wednesday 7h
April for our IATEFL Pre-Conference Event.
The main focus of the PCE day will be to consider where we are now 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 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
in Second Life.
Group leaders (in Harrogate and online in Second Life) will then work with
the conference participants to support the discussion of whatever questions
get raised as a part of the day; groups will then report back to the
