- DEVELOPERS’ SHOWCASE – The Developers’ Showcase is an opportunity for ESOL teachers and curriculum/course designers to demonstrate new and original computer applications and/or websites. Presenters have 8 to 12 minutes to demonstrate and/or operate their software and explain its features and applications. A question-and-answer session follows each presentation.
- MOBILE APPS FOR EDUCATION – The Mobile Apps for Education session provides ESOL teachers with the opportunity to demonstrate pedagogical uses for their favorite mobile applications. Presenters will have approximately ten minutes to demonstrate their application and explain its uses for ESOL classrooms. A question-and-answer session follows each presentation.
