I caught up with Valentina on our Bosphorus boat on the last night. Valentina had been one of the best tweeters and retweeters during the conference. We hadn’t had a scheduled interview in our makeshift conference “studio” but I really wanted to interview her about her ISTEK session.
She looked at different ways of handling learner accuracy and discussed the challenges and opportunities which arise from the digital permanency of learner “mistakes”. She also looked at how the web-based platform English360,of which she is the learning manager, can enhance and personalise the learning experience even more.
Check out the English360 website http://www.english360.com/ and enjoy the inteview with Valentina with the disco raging downstairs and the Bosphorus bridge changing colour in the background.
