JALTCALL2018 from My Angle

I attended and presented at JALTCALL2018 in June (you can find my poster here) and here are some highlights, takeaways, and thoughts (I know I should have written this blog post much earlier!):

  • I attended Andrew Blyth’s workshop, How to Set up Your Own Website to Support Your Students and Career. Check HelloSpace to learn more on this topic.

  • I talked to Gary Ross about how to learn to code, and here is his advice:
  1. Start with creating a webpage
  2. Take online courses on coding
  3. Listen to Jen Simmons’s podcasts:  http://jensimmons.com/
  4. Read books (I’m waiting for Gary to share his favorite books with me. I’ll add them later).

After talking to Gary, I searched and found these two websites:

  • While I liked the interactive nature of the roundtable, The Future of Educational Technology, I found the discussion about introversion and shyness simplistic and biased. Also, linguistic imperialism was acknowledged, however, the message was: That’s the way it is. We enjoy it!
