The symposium entitled “How to Cope with Digital Bees: E-learning Practices in Secondary Education” brought together teachers, directors, and professionals to exchange and discuss ideas and experiences regarding e-learning in English Language Teaching. Teachers and directors from secondary schools shared their relevant applications, observations, reflections and practices. See http://digiprep11.cankaya.edu.tr/index.html for the conference web site.
The symposium’s theme covered the following topics:
- Web-based learning & teaching
- On-line education
- Blended learning
- Web 2.0 Tools
- Multimedia Tools
I was invited to give a plenary session on pragmatic issues and concerns in using Web2.0 tools in teaching. Here is a slidecast of my plenary session. Any comments or observations about your own teaching practices in this context would be welcome.
