TELLConsult co-presented iTILT at REAL-TICE conference

on Fri, 06/24/2011 - 23:46

Together with British Council partner Graham Stanley we did a workshop on IWBs in Language Education at the REAL-TICE conference on June 22-25 in Madrid. 

The event was organised  by the European Network of Language Teacher Associations (REAL) in collaboration with several Language Teacher Associations, including TESOL-SPAIN.  Fore more information, programme and presentations consult the Seminar website
Main goals of the seminar were to enable participants to:
  • share their concerns, ideas and experiences about the world of teaching and learning languages;
  • find out about new solutions on how to bring technology into their teaching practices;
  • learn how to develop their students’ digital competences;
 
More than 100 people attended the conference. And with 20 people present at our  iTILT project workshop we could have a truly interactive session, brainstorming on realising added value of IWBs in Language Education and discussing related teacher competences and quality criteria for materials
 
For me personally the networking aspect remains undeniably a powerful aspect of events like these. I met several nice and interesting people, an important first step towards knowledge sharing. Some of them also showed an interest in becoming iTILT associate partner.
 
I also used the opportunity to get to know Madrid. I enjoyed visiting the city centre and its fabulous museums enormously.
It also gave me chance to pay tribute to my great inspirator and his loyal assistant :-)
