Reflections on #ililc2 25-26 February 2012

Well it's finished but not over. This year's ICT and Languages conference #ililc2 at Southampton University was as successful as last year with a wide scope of attendees from as close as Southampton to as far as Ethiopia.

Key note speakers Joe Dale and José Picardo set the scene for using social media in education and how Mr Michale Gove seems to be finally tuning in to the educational benefits of technology, whilst workshop speakers (including Annalise Adam, Wendy Adeniji, Alex Blagona, Vanessa Burns, Joe Dale, Catherine Elliott, Stuart Gorse, Esther Hardman, Isabelle Jones, Helen Myers, Carole Nicoll, Juliet Park, Bertram Richter, Jo Rhys-Jones, Amanda Salt, Clare Seccombe, Lisa Stevens, Jenny Turner, and Sara Vaughan) provided a wide range of information, activities, ideas and inspiration to enhance current practice and take us forward. Not to mention the infamous Show and Tell event Sat evening which had delegates and bar staff alike in stitches on various occasions.

More updates here soon along with my session presentations from "Using ICT to enhance Teaching and Learning in MFL" and "Flashmeeting for Easy Videoconferencing" (both available on my SlideShare profile page until I can sort out an "embed glitch" here on the blog). All resources will also be found on the Languages South East website shortly.

For now, here are some wonderful pictures of teachers in action at the Show and Tell as @elvisrunner demonstrated her "Human Dominoes" game for language learning:
