—During the recent 2014 Northern Regional Conference, “Collaborating and Learning,” held at the Sacramento County Office of Education on April 26, 2014, TELL-IG conducted a rap session at lunch. The notes and links to resources can be found on TELL-IG’s wiki:

Participants shared their experiences, favorite resources, and tools, and they asked for the advice of the group regarding technology integration in ESL teaching and learning.

Some of the discussions shared were about Smart classrooms, interactive whiteboards, ESL YouTube channels, online quizzes, and discussion prompt repositories. Also discussed were the use of QR codes, certification for online teaching, and websites with good printable worksheets. Finally, some participants had questions about how to start a project in which they would videotape real-time teacher presentations and include them as video clips in an online course to deliver to an audience different from their classroom learners. If you have any suggestions and resources to share, please join the conversation on TELL-IG Google group at CATESOL-TELL@googlegroups.com.

Blair Roy is coordinator of the Technology Enhanced Language Learning Interest Group.
