The KOTESOL people are really into using computers to help the kids. In yesterday’s workshops I had a break so checked out some of the CALL (computer aided language learning) workshops.

Jason Renshaw ( of English Raven fame ) did a great one on how he uses his own ( just one “E”) and YackPack to set his kids speaking homework. The kids are set assignments and record the answers online. There’s no pressure of having to talk in front of others and apparently works wonders with shy kids. It looks great.

Elsewhere Moodle was the hot topic of the moment. Everyone was raving about it!

Hello, I'm Richard Graham. When I was a kid I found school to be sooooo boring... So I transformed my way of teaching. I listened to what the kids were really wanting to say and taught it in ways they really wanted to learn. The results were magical. Now I help teachers just like you teach amazing lessons and double your incomes!
