Reminder - CO11: Free Online Conference 5th, 6th, 7th February 2011

The CO11 Free Online Conference , organised by Integrating Technology for Active and Lifelong Learning will commence shortly on Friday 4th February!! There are over 40 great presenters that you can listen to over the course of the next 3 days. This conference will provide the perfect opportunity for you to learn more about how to integrate technology into your classes and the curriculum to improve instruction and learning. I wrote an earlier post about it here.

This fantastic free conference kicks off on Friday 4th February at midday (Rome Time) with a very interesting session by Silvia Purpuri called "Leaping over the Ditch of Digital Illiteracy".

On Saturday 5th February, I'll be attending Greta Sandler and Shelly Terrell's joint presentation called "Blended Instruction with Blogs and Wikis for Young Learners".

Janet's Presentation
I am very proud to be presenting on Saturday at 9pm (Rome Time). My presentation will focus on ways to teach new words flowing into the English language in an effective and memorable way using face to face and online instruction. You can find more details for the session here. I look forward to seeing you there!

Dear Janyoet,
I'd like to congratulate you on the wonderful presentation yesterday.
I was wondering, are you going to publish the ppt used in your presentation. I'd love to explore those links you shared. Loved your ideas for activities.

Hi Ana Maria

Thank you so much for your very kind words. It was lovely to see you at the webinar and it meant a lot to me!

Yes, I certainly hope to do a feedback post on my blog where I will add the links and the ppt as soon as I can :)

That's good to hear Janet, I was just about to ask the same question about the PPT!

It was a terrific presentation leaving me with many ideas and resources to follow up on. Well, done!

That's fab that you enjoyed my presentation, Lesley!! Despite my 2 (or 3??) "senior moments" during the talk, I actually got into my stride fairly quickly as it was such a relaxed atmosphere.

It was absolutely lovely to see so many familiar faces, and that really spurred me on to go "with the flow"!! I haven't read the chat that was going on while I was presenting, but am looking forward to reading it hopefully tomorrow!!

I'm currently with my family in England, and don't have much spare time but as soon as I can, I'll have something up!
