Do You Speak Tech? 3.0

Second Languages and Intercultural Council PD and AGM Event

Free for SLIC members!

Participants of past Do You Speak Tech? 1.0 or 2.0 SLIC professional learning events were overwhelming in their request for a hands-on, dig deeper session to explore technologies of their choice and create resources for their own classrooms. SLIC's response? Great idea!

The Second Languages and Intercultural Council (SLIC) of the Alberta Teachers' Association is thus offering a FREE for members hands-on professional learning opportunity focused on supported individual playtime with the "Best of the Best" learning technologies for the second language classroom. Great news: even if you missed the previous PD events, you can still 'play' along!

Space is limited (maximum 100 participants). Register early to avoid disappointment!
