The 22nd Academic Conference called "From Global Trends to National Curriculums" took place at the Sheraton Hotel in Mar del Plata. I was invited to attend by Carolina Rioseco. Do you want to see the place? Click on these videos (Sorry if the sound is not good )
Here are some photos, place the cursor over the photos and you will get the names of the people in the photo :
In one of the photos you can see a "whiteboard", the new tool Longman is offering. It is really fantastic! fully interactive: videos, listening material, activities, and you can write on it or highlighten text with an electronic pen. Really innovative.
Talking about presentations? All presentations were good, but the one that I found very interesting was the one by Josefina Semillán Dartiguelongue. She is an anthropological and social philosopher who spoke for an hour and a half and kept all the audience in her fist. Her vocabulary is very rich and she really knows how to keep the attention by changing register - from academic to informal teenager "slang" - and introducing some funny annecdotes or subtle jokes. Her presentation was called: " From relationship bonds to motivation" ( Very inspiring) .Unfortunatelly, she has not written any book :(
I hope I will have the pleasure to listen to her again!
