Educational Technology & Global Issues - An IATEFL LTSIG & GISIG event
An online event unlike anything you have heard before!
The IATEFL Learning Technologies SIG and Global Issues SIG are putting together an exciting month-long online event. The format will be a series of audio episodes, almost like a weekly radio show.
Each episode will feature a full interview with an expert in the field of technology discussing different problematic aspects of edtech and global issues, as well as success stories of where technology is genuinely making a difference.
