Welcome to the IATEFL Learning Technologies Special Interest Group.

 

We are an international community of educators who promote action research and best practice in the creative applications of  educational technology in practical learning situations. We are classroom teachers who share, speak and write to inspire more of you to do the same. This website is our interactive home where we’ll feature cutting-edge leaders in the field as well as grass-roots teachers who are making a difference in all kinds of classrooms all over the world.

From chat shows and podcasts to guest blogs, scholarships, conferences and personal learning networks, we’ve got our fingers on the pulse of edtech trends around the world. It’s easy to join us and it’s inspiring to contribute. Now would be a good time to find and refine your teaching voice on line with the LTSIG.
