The theme this year surrounds the idea that technology and media are an integral part of language learning. For English language learners, we must continue to show media in other forms outside of the textbook. This includes multimodal texts, media not limited to images, and video. The conference provides the opportunity to present either research or practical methods that apply to English Language Learners. Join us to learn about practices being incorporated in throughout New York State.
