Integrating the TESOL Technology Standards into a CALL Mini-Course

This talk begins with a brief overview of the TESOL Technology Standards and then describes how they have been integrated into an 8-12 hour “mini-course” covering the foundations of CALL that the presenter teaches and updates annually. Participants learn how to freely access both the Standards and the website containing all the course materials.

10:15-10:35 Greg Kessler

Helping teachers make informed decisions about intelligent tools

We are witnessing significant developments in the areas of big data and artificial intelligence. The potential for application of these developments across education is almost too dramatic and vast to comprehend. The presenter will share a number of current developments along with suggested practices for TESOL professionals.   
10:35-10:55 Christine Rosalia Lessons in Play: Repositioning technology integration in content-based language classrooms  This talk argues that teachers must deliberately allow time for play in their integration of technology into their content-based language teaching. Decision-making tensions between established and emerging technologies will be highlighted.  

Lessons in Play:

Repositioning technology integration

in content-based language teaching
10:55-11:15 Q&A
