What is it?

All are invited to attend a free Technology day!  Come along to a 'hands-on' experience of a wide range of practical ideas and activities in which technology can support language learning in and outside school, however much or little access you have to equipment and resources.  There will be something for everyone! (all sectors - all ages - all abilities - all languages)  and we especially welcome Primary teachers and TEFL friends from all over the world!  Free coffee and buffet lunch thanks to our Sponsor, 'Sanako'.  We will be accommodated in 2 computer rooms (each fitted with 34 computers with access to a wide range of software) and a classroom with wifi access.  

Who is in charge?

Hosts for the day:

·         Joe Dale, world- renowned ICT Independent Consultant and special friend of ALL London!

 How do I get there? (see next page for maps and details)

BY TRAIN: Very easy access to 2 nearby stations - Dorking Mainline or  Dorking Deepdene- 5 minutes' walk from the stations.  50 minutes on a stopping train from Waterloo or Victoria. Direct trains to Guildford (20 minutes) and Reading (1 hour) (so avoiding need to go via London)

BY CAR: 10 minutes from M25 Junction 9 turn off for Leatherhead (Saturday less busy!)  Lots of free parking at school.

 What will we do?

The exact programme will be arranged when we have final numbers, but core activities will include:

·         Using published resources (popular ICT-based courses both commercial and free)

·         Creating your own resources (audio, video, text)

·         Tapping ICT for engaging and culture-enhancing activities

·         Stimulating independent language learning

·         Using mobile devices (phones, pads) in and outside the classroom (workshop led by Joe Dale)

·         A chance to 'play' in the last session and try out ideas introduced in earlier sessions

 All delegates will be able to experience how these activities can be managed within a language lab environment and the 'community' of an online group.

 As refreshments will be provided, it would be very helpful to know how many people are intending to attend.
