Our keynote speaker will be Claire Braidin Siskin who will give a talk on "Learning globally through disruptive technologies." Claire is currently Director of the ESL Workshop Project at Excelsior College.

Learning globally through disruptive technologies

Web 2.0 technologies are often referred to as "disruptive," but do we really need more disruption in education? Don't we have enough problems as it is? Although Web 2.0 can enrich the ways in which we teach and learn languages, fundamental changes in the "normal" order of things may be involved in the process. How can we decide which Web 2.0 tools to use and how to use them to best advantage? Will it really be worth all the trouble? The presenter will offer some suggestions for handling the inevitable disruption.
