Nagasaki JALT:

Interactive Blended Learning: The next generation of ELT

Date: Saturday, November 15th, 2008 Time: 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Speaker: Borys Diakonow, Pearson Longman Japan

While published ELT materials will continue to dominate the language classroom, technology has undisputedly made significant inroads into collaborating with language education, resulting in "b-learning", or blended learning. This presentation will first bring you up to speed on what b-learning options have evolved over the past several years, and which are available in Japan, and then will focus on how to use b-learning to increase English practice outside of class, facilitate classroom management, provide continuous assessment, encourage autonomous learning, and support the integration of both language and technology skills. Please join us for our ninth meeting of the year.
