Examining the “E” in TESOL
March 17-19, 2011
Call for Proposals
Deadline for Submissions: November 15, 2010
You are invited to submit a proposal for participation in one or more of
the CALL Interest Section’s Electronic Village Special Events. More than
one proposal from the same individual may be accepted based upon space
Proposals are being accepted for the following EV Special Events:
EV Fairs are informal demonstrations where teachers or
teacher-developers share their use of technology resources in two
consecutive 25-minute sessions on one computer station in a presentation
format similar to a poster session.
*HARDWARE & MOBILE TECHNOLOGY FAIR*
The Hardware & Mobile Technology Fair focuses on the uses of devices
other than computers that offer unique applications such as iPods or
Tablet PCs. The Fair provides presenters with two consecutive 25-minute
sessions to demonstrate their hardware applications.
The EV Mini-workshops are limited-seating ticketed events that provide
short presentations followed by hands-on experience. Workshop duration
is 90 minutes.
The Developers’ Showcase is an opportunity for ESOL teachers and
curriculum/course designers to demonstrate new and original computer
applications. Presenters have 8 to 12 minutes to demonstrate and/or
operate their software and explain its features and applications. A
question and answer session follows each presentation.
*MOBILE APPS FOR EDUCATION
The Mobile Apps for Education session provides ESOL teachers with the
opportunity to demonstrate pedagogical uses for their favorite mobile
applications. Presenters will briefly demonstrate their application and
explain its uses for ESOL classrooms. A question and answer session
follows each presentation.
