Interested in learning how educators are using technology with their learners in a range of different contexts around the world? Read on.

There are a couple of free online conferences about using technology with English language learners next week (11-13 October), that you shouldn’t miss.

Here are the dates for your diary:

This entirely online conference kicks off on Friday 11th and runs over the whole weekend. The conference brings educators together online  from all over the globe, with 10 international keynote speakers, and over 100 presentations. Sugata Mitra is giving the opening plenary, and I’m giving a 20 minutes ‘Insights’ slot just before that on the Friday (gulp!). Make sure you don’t miss this unique online conference – you have a whole weekend of sessions to choose from! Find out more about the conference.

The IATEFL Learning Technologies SIG and TESOL CALL-IS are running a free one-day conference called ‘Using Technology in Teaching: Principles in Practice’ on Saturday 12 October. Speakers include Carol Chappelle, Shaun Wilden, Deborah Healey, Phil Hubbard, Sophie Ioannou-Georgiou, Paige Ware, Elizabeth Hanson-Smith, Cristel Broady – plus my colleague Gavin Dudeney (on digital literacies) and myself (on mobile BYOD). Find out more about this one-day online event.

Hope to see you there!
