E-schooling Conference in Santiago, Chile

On April 17th and 18th I travelled to Chile to present at the E-schooling Conference organised by the Association of British Schools in Chile.

The event gathered around 20 speakers from different countries including, Chile, Argentina, Brazil and the UK speaking about technology integration, 21st century curriculum development and new tools for e-learning. There were about 200 participant from different parts of Chile.

The conference was well-organised and provided an updated panorama of the work being done at different levels and in different areas.

My presentation "Making the Most of Free Web Applications" was a showcase of different applications that can be used to enhance traditional language learning, with examples of actual uses of those applications taken from my classes. Except for some minor connectivity problems, which forced me to start the presentation 10 minutes late, everything came out as planned and the feedback was very positive.

All in all, it was a fantastic experience!
