« Happy Days are here again for languages! | Main | ICT Links into Languages Conference Buzz! »



Joe - will those of us across the pond be able to participate via a backchannel?

Hi Marcy,

You can follow the official hashtag for the conference #ililc. We will also be recording some sessions and no doubt speakers will be blogging about their own talks too.

Hello, this is Brittany Pittman from the EDM 310 class. I think ICT links into language is a great idea. I believe that most, like me, would love to go to an event that will get you involved in blogging, wikis and more.

I'm currently taking EDM310 at the University of South Alabama and one of my assignments was to read your blog and comment on two of the most recent posts.

Anyway, I did a little research on what the Links into Languages program was about and also saw that the UK government has cut funding. I find that quite awful. This program is a wonderful thing and I agree with everything it's about. Knowing more than just your native language these days is very important, but it's hard to find a class that's effective enough to where students actually remember the material. I myself have had three Spanish classes over the course of my high school and college careers. My teachers were great, but there were such huge gaps in between each class, I'd forgotten most of the material. Not to mention, I really had no way of holding onto what I learned. I simply went through the classes and learned what I had to to pass them. I'm sorry that funding was cut, but I hope the program can continue in its efforts in finding better resources and ways of teaching.

Hi Chelsea,

Thanks for your comment and for researching Links into Languages. It is very sad that the funding is ending next month, but hopefully the program will be able to carry on in some way after that independently. We'll see.

Thanks for your comment Brittany. I suggest you follow the ililc hashtag and I'm sure you'll pick up a great deal over the two days of the conference.

Hi, my name is Sheena Nettles. I am a student in EDM 310 at the University of South Alabama. I think that the links that you posted on this blog are very helpful for future teachers. I would love to attend one of these events and become more familiar with the technology that we as future teachers need to learn about.
