Professional Development: What is our future and where are we headed?

In spite of freezing cold wind and rain, teachers from different parts of the state and even from Guadalajara came to attend Morelia Chapter’s Regional Convention this past February 11 and 12.

The event was inaugurated by the Assistant Director of the Universidad Internacional Jefferson. Due to a bad Web connection, the opening plenary was moved to the slot of the closing plenary, but we were still able to share what Jose Manuel Villfuerte of the US Embassy had to say.

In keeping with the theme of the convention, Richmond’s Mauricio Cortes’ presentation / workshop ICTs in ELT  gave participants clear ideas of how to keep student learning at maximum level. He also got us up and dancing and moving as we explored ways to keep students active and engaged. Here is the information on TechnologyStandards that Mauricio has left for all Mextesol members and interested parties.

Concurrent workshops offered to conference-goers a deeper look at

Extensive Reading activities;

Ideas for certification;

How CADI or a self-access learning center provides learners with ways of learning how they learn.

Online speaking activity: Fotobabble with the use of blogs, in which participants found their technological prowess on the TIM.indicators matrix before exploring Web 2.0 tools.
