Online Conferences: A new trend?

Spring is certainly a popular time for TESL conferences.  Have you noticed that more and more conferences are going online?  A perfect example is the SkyTeach conference this weekend (30 speakers from around the world and more than 1,000 participants!).

Another online conference that I am thrilled to be part of is the Online Teacher Summit taking place from April 2 - 9.  

There is growing interest in online language teaching so this free conference is timely. Technology allows us to teach a language from anywhere in the world. This 100% online event will provide information about the best tools and practices from experienced online teachers.

We all make them. 

It's embarrassing especially as language teachers but we all make errors.  I always say that when I win a million dollars, I'm going to hire a personal editor/proofreader!

I've seen a lot of clever Grammarly ads on twitter for but never thought much about it as an app for me.  I just signed up this week and it's absolutely brilliant.  This free app actually proofreads my social media texts (including this blog post!)

It is also a perfect online tool for our language learning students.
