      CALL FOR PROPOSALS FOR THREE TESOL 2007 ELECTRONIC VILLAGE SPECIAL EVENTS
      TESOL 2007: "Spanning the Globe: Tides of Change"
      March 21-24, 2007
      Seattle, Washington, USA
      EV FAIRS, EV MINI-WORKSHOPS, and DEVELOPERS' SHOWCASE

      ***DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS: January 31, 2007***

      You are invited to submit a proposal for participation in one or more
      of these TESOL 2007 CALL Interest Section Special Events. You are
      welcome to submit proposals to more than one event, and it is possible
      to have more than one proposal accepted (depending on space
      availability and quality of the submission). Windows and Macintosh
      equipment will be available at no charge, along with CD ROM Drives,
      Internet connections, and (for the Showcase and EV Mini-Workshops)
      projection equipment. Plan to bring a minimum of 100 handouts per
      Fair/Showcase acceptance slot since these are very popular events!

      WHAT HAPPENS AT THE FAIRS:
      Presenters have approximately 20-30 minutes to demonstrate their
      material on 1-2 computer(s) without projection equipment in a
      presentation format similar to a "poster session." Participants walk
      around the EV, dropping in and out of demonstrations, thus precluding
      highly structured presentations. A demonstration may be repeated a
      second time (an additional 20 to 30 minutes), if interest warrants and
      space allows.

      WHAT HAPPENS AT THE MINI-WORKSHOPS:
      One presenter introduces a topic to a small group of workshop
      participants. The workshop is "hands-on" in a computer lab setting.
      Each workshop - with instruction and "hands-on" practice - lasts 90
      minutes.

      WHAT HAPPENS AT THE SHOWCASE:
      One presenter at a time demonstrates her/his program. Seating is
      provided for the audience.

      _____EV FAIRS_____
      Coordinator: Paula Emmert Email: emmert4@...
      WHAT IS IT? This year's EV Fairs combines two previous events: the
      Internet Fairs and Applications Fairs. In the new EV Fairs, teachers
      or teachers-developers share their use of computer-based resources.
      These resources can be software (PowerPoint, Microsoft Word, Excel,
      Focus on Grammar, Word Attack, Skype, etc.) or websites (presenter-made
      or public like CNN.com, Yahoo! Groups, an online concordancer, etc.).
      Demonstrations may highlight student projects, activities or curriculum
      created for students or educators. Examples:
      -Email projects
      -Lesson plan archives for teachers
      -Vocabulary worksheets using an online thesaurus
      -Skimming/scanning activities using a local newspaper webpage
      -Research/writing exercises for investigating Internet hoaxes
      -Vocabulary flashcards using iFlash on an iPod
      -A descriptive writing activity combined with HyperStudio illustrations
      PROPOSALS
      Please submit your proposal(s) for the EV Fair online at
      http://www.langconcepts.net/ev2007.html

      _____EV MINI-WORKSOHPS_____
      Coordinator: Sophie Ioannou-Georgiou Email: yiansoph@...
      WHAT IS IT? The EV Mini-workshops are intended to be limited seating
      events for hands-on workshops where participants gain experience in
      adaptation of standard software for CALL purposes. Participants have
      the opportunity to create a product or gain depth in use of software.
      Examples:
      -Using iMovie
      -Working with audio and/or video
      -Setting up a Moodle
      -Creating podcasts
      -Using Hot Potatoes to create online quizzes
      -Improving PowerPoint skills
      -Designing webquests
      PROPOSALS
      Please submit your proposal(s) for the EV Mini-workshops online at
      http://www.langconcepts.net/ev2007.html

      _____DEVELOPERS' SHOWCASE_____
      Coordinator: Sookhee Kim Plotkin Email: sookhee.plotkin@...
      WHAT IS IT? The Developers' Showcase is one of several ways in which
      the CALL-IS disseminates information about computers and
      computer-assisted instruction to the ESL/EFL professional community.
      The Showcase provides an opportunity for the designers of ESL/EFL
      software to display their work, and for potential users, software
      developers, and marketers to examine and react to it. We especially
      welcome projects produced by teachers for their own students or
      projects produced under development grants.

      This Showcase includes materials in the following two categories:
      1. disk-based software, including floppy-disk, hard disk, and CD-ROMs.
      2. web-based software, including both programs that can be accessed
      directly from the web and those that can be downloaded.

      The Showcase is not a commercial venue. Only work that is not yet on
      the market will be considered.
      The following types of software are not acceptable for the Showcase:
      * Software that is already contracted with a publisher
      * Software that has been offered for sale independently, or which the
      presenter plans to sell independently, including by subscription or as
      shareware
      * Software given away free to promote a commercial interest
      PROPOSALS
      Please submit your proposal(s) for the Developers' Showcase online at
      http://www.langconcepts.net/ev2007.html or contact Sookhee Kim Plotkin
      directly at
      sookhee.plotkin@...
