Teaching tools series 2: Introducing The Electronic Village for Language Teaching
As educators, we are always interested in expanding our horizons when trying new educational tools and approaches. However, due to the tightly scheduled and intensive courses, there is sometimes not enough time for trial and error. Moreover, the past two years of adapting to the context of emergency remote teaching demonstrated how crucial technology can be for sustaining the educational environment. In this post, I would like to introduce the Electronic Village 2022, a YouTube channel featuring live streams and recordings of the workshops and presentations by the Computer-Assisted Language Learning Interest Section (CALL-IS) of the TESOL International Convention. Although TESOL's primary focus is English language education, many activities, tools, and approaches are transferable to teaching other foreign languages and content-integrated language courses.
The playlists of this channel introduce a variety of topics related to Computer-Assisted Language learning, such as best presentations from 2020 to 2022 on how to use various online, offline, and mobile teaching/learning/collaborative tools and sessions on accessibility, assessment, and materials design. Check out the all the interesting videos here.
Feel free to get in touch to share what presentations and/or workshops you find most beneficial for your courses and how. It would be great to have a discussion to share our ideas and opinions!
