NEW to ATESL! Join the Educational Technology Special Interest Group!
Building on the interest generated at the Educational Technology Summit held during the ATESL 2017 conference in Calgary, ATESL is pleased to announce the formation of the Educational Technology Special Interest Group (EdTech SIG).The purpose of the Ed Tech SIG is to bring English language professionals currently working with technology together on a quarterly basis to support their professional development in the area. The focus of the meetings will be guided by the SIG members and may include sharing ideas, discussing new technologies, reviewing current literature, and so much more! Meetings will be held virtually using technologies such as Google Hangouts or Zoom. Wendy Chambers (ATESL President 2015-2016) and Amy Meckelborg are taking the initial lead of the SIG and invite interested ATESL members to join the first online meeting taking place on Monday, April 16th from 7:00-8:00 pm.
