No offense to all the TESOL people out there, but I was a little disappointed by this year’s conference, mainly because there were so many useless presentations. I found some wonderful sessions, and I learned a lot, but then I sat through sessions that were laughable at best. Since this is how I often see my research, I thought, well, I should go to TESOL. I’m thinking I’ll do something tech-related, and I’ve been trying to find ways to use both Google and Jing in the classroom. I won’t be able to try any of this until I start my new job, but TESOL 2012 is several months away, so I’ll be making a guess about what I’ll do until then. Here’s hoping they like it. And if they don’t, they’ll have to explain to me how Mr. “University reading is hard, and our students aren’t prepared, but I have no solutions” got accepted, but I didn’t.
