I have just delivered this presentation at the AFMLTA National Conference 2013 Canberra. It was supported by examples of work that I typically get from my students and how I scaffold them into it by using these principles. It was quite a goal I had set myself once the abstract for the conference was accepted. I had to make sure that I was delivering something worthy of a national conference and which would represent the sorts of achievements we can have by making ourselves open to the flexible use of technology. My presentation was well received and has since generated some really good sharing of ideas by teachers as to how they use technology in their classroom. It’s a tool. It’s not the answer. When we enhance our skills as teachers then we become even better teachers and that was what the conference was about. As language teachers we were able to take some time to look at sound pedagogical practice, industry input, academic research and developments and then talk that through with other teachers. One of the pluses is we were using technology to connect to further grow our ideas as we sat in lecture theatres and rooms .
