ICT and Languages Conference 2013 (#ililc3) "Jailbreaking the Languages Classroom"

Date: Saturday, 9 February, 2013 - 08:30 - Sunday, 10 February, 2013 - 16:30
Location: University of Southampton - Avenue Campus
The ICT and Languages Conference held at The University of Southampton is a must-attend for any language teachers wanting to keep up with language-related ICT developments. It caters for beginners all the way up to the very tech-savvy and I do not know of anybody who has attended and not learnt anything All delegates also really appreciate the very supportive and friendly atmosphere which is a perfect environment for sharing ideas and meeting new like-minded people.  

The programme this year will aim to offer a range of sessions with an emphasis on ‘hands-on’ workshops, where colleagues can really get to grips with the new ideas and tools being demonstrated, and share good practice in a nurturing environment.
Whilst many sessions have an ICT focus, there are also plenty of sessions which will exemplify creative and effective MFL teaching and learning.
The event will also include a free Show and Tell event on the Saturday evening – which encourages everyone to showcases more high-tech and low-tech good ideas and fun activities for the languages classroom. 
The Call for Proposals is now open and this is a fantastic opportunity for any enthusiastic language teacher to share what they are doing. Not doing anything special? That’s what you think! Put a proposal together and let the #ililc3 organisers decide…
All proposals need to be submitted by 12 noon on Monday 9th July. Priority will be given to those teachers/presenters who are able to offer two sessions. Please submit your proposals here .
If you would like to explore this event further and get an overview of sessions please see last year’s footage, sessions and programme here.
The programme is open until the call for proposal is closed but we already know who the Keynote Speakers are.  Following on from Joe Dale, blogger extraordinaire and founder member of ililc, international speaker and recognised expert on technology and language learning, who will be opening the conference on the Saturday, I am indeed delighted to be the Sunday keynote speaker.
