James Taylor attended the 48th IATEFL conference in Harrogate as a representative of BELTA (the Belgian English Language Teachers Association). Bea Price recorded an interview with him before his Pecha Kucha on Friday, his first ever presentation at IATEFL.
“As always at the IATEFL conference, I had wonderful and enriching time, watching fascinating presentations, catching up with old friends, and making new ones. I can’t until next year!” - James wrote in his blog.
In his latest blog post, James offers a summary of the #ELTchat on the debate Sugata Mitra’s plenary talk has sparked among language teachers. The post lists a great number of arguments that have been raised, and you can also find the list of 25 questions Sugata Mitra will answer TODAY in a webinar. The event is free and anyone is welcome to join, so we really hope many of you can spare some time in the afternoon and join us for the debate.
Here is the call for the event from IATEFL:
