TESOL 2007 report

Seattle was rainy every day. Sometimes it poured; sometimes it drizzled; sometimes it just looked rainy and didn't get around to raining until later. Mostly the local folks slung their fish around and didn't seem to mind. There was a lot of traffic. Out in the city there were a lot of old Volvos and Saabs. Here's what I did:

Leverett, T. (2007, Mar.). Student weblogging for fluency, skills and integration. Writing IS Demonstration, TESOL Convention, Seattle, WA. Accompanying script:
http://www.siu.edu/~cesl/teachers/pd/wf.html.

Leverett, T. (2007, Mar.). Weblog portfolios in an intensive English program. eFairs Classics, CALL-IS Electronic Village, TESOL Convention, Seattle WA.
http://www.siu.edu/~cesl/teachers/pd/wp.html.

Leverett, T. & Moody, L. (2007, Mar.) Defining, detecting and dealing with online plagiarism. CALL-IS Discussion, TESOL Convention, Seattle, WA.

Another high point of the convention was a webheads reunion, well-documented with pictures, not to mention a great visit with my daughter, who also documents such things very well. I'll get to it myself, and to the cesl blogs, as soon as I can- maybe some sleep first!

Hi Tom,
It was nice to meet you in Seattle. Pity I could not attend any of your presentations about blogs. I did one on open webpublishing at the EVO Fair and explained how we are using social tools together with blogs.
It would be nice to exchange ideas.

Hi Tom,
It was nice to meet you at diner in Seattle. Pity I did not find the time to attend any of your presentations. I did one with Patricia on open webpublishing at the EVO Fair and explained how we are using social tools in a participatory way according to learners' interests.
Looking forward to exchanging ideas with you.
