The Guardian Weekly – May 26: IATEFL conference debate – Report

Harrogate, the North Yorkshire spa town, is famous for its Turkish baths…. and the International Convention Centre. The centre proved a fitting venue for the 2006 IATEFL conference, which every year draws hundreds of teachers from all around the world. This year, the Learning technology sessions were packed to bursting. The use of technology in language teaching is officially mainstream, and not the preserve of a few enthusiasts and technophiles. A glance at the conference program showed two major events discussing technology. My role was to chair one of them, the Guardian Weekly – OneStopEnglish debate: “The Learner of the Future.”
