Tech Day

Sunday, June 26th, 1:00 to 5:30 pm (first workshop starts at about 1:30)

Place: Building 1 of Hannan University's main campus, a 10-minute walk north of Kawachi Imami station, on the Kintetsu line from Tennoji. Look for the JALT banners when you get to the campus. For assistance on the 26th call 080-3789-6394.

Presenters: Gordon Wilson (Hannan Univ.), Steve Silsbee (Hannan & Momoyama Universities), Cameron Romney (Momoyama Univ.), & Marlen Harrison (Momoyama & Doshisha Universities)

The presenters will share their experiences and ideas for putting technology to effective use in and out of the classroom. This will be a hands-on afternoon with topics including using lesser known features of Microsoft Word to help improve the look of handouts used in class, using Pal-Talk and Skype to get students enjoying speaking with each other in English, using Movie-Maker software, creating free online surveys, and more. Be prepared for some seriously fun hands-on computer time in Hannan Universities brand new facility! Feel free to bring a favorite language learning or teaching website or bit of technical knowledge to share.

Dinner will follow at a nearby restaurant.

Cost: JALT members 500 yen; non-members 1500. (Osaka local membership dues are just 2000 yen per year for those that don’t feel like joining JALT as a national member but would like to enjoy members’ discounts on all Osaka JALT events.)
