Osaka JALT:

Tech Day

Date: Sunday, June 26th, 2005 Time: 1:00 PM - 5:30 PM

Speaker: Gordon Wilson (Hannan Univ.), Steve Silsbee (Hannan & Momoyama Univ.), Cameron Romney (Momoyama Univ.), & Marlen Harrison (Momoyama & Doshisha Univ.)

The presenters will share their experiences and ideas for putting technology to better use in and out of the classroom. This will be a hands-on afternoon with topics including using lesser known features of Microsoft Word to help improve the look of handouts used in class, using Pal-Talk and Skype to get students enjoying speaking with each other in English, using Movie-Maker software, creating free online surveys, and more. Be prepared for some seriously fun hands-on computer time! Feel free to bring a favorite language learning or teaching website or bit of technical knowledge to share. Doors open at 1:00 and the first workshop will start at about 1:30. Look for the JALT banners when you get to the campus. Dinner will follow at a nearby restaurant.
