Global Discussion on the Future Relationship Between Technology and Language Education
How have professional development groups coped with their new circumstances during these past 18 months, in particular with the need to incorporate technology into education? Most of us are familiar with at least OTJ, but what of other groups around the world? How have they grown and changed due to these new challenges? What developments do they foresee – both good and bad – due to the pandemic and the circumstances it brought? Online teaching was forced on most of us. It was a shock to many but for others it was a light bulb moment. For others it was “yes, now everyone sees the benefits of technology in education”, whilst for others it was “look at what this has done to the quality of education”. We doubt anyone will be able to conclusively say what was right and what was wrong but a lot of interesting changes and challenges were born of the pandemic. Come and listen to representatives from the PD and technology groups from around the world and share your thoughts and ideas with them in this roundtable discussion.
