TESOL France workshop Dec 13 - Creating web-based activities with Hot Potatoes

Dear TESOL France member/supporter

Creating web-based activities with Hot Potatoes

December 13th 2008
2pm - 5pm (followed by the Annual General Assembly)
Télécom ParisTech

Led by Laurence Whiteside, and Sab Will, Editor of The Teaching Times and Blogmaster

Hot Potatoes is a suite of programs for PCs and Macs, to allow you you to create interactive exercises, including multiple-choice, short-answer, jumbled-sentence, crossword, matching/ordering and gap-fills, for the World Wide Web. In this workshop, Laurence Whiteside and Sab Will will show you how to:

* create simple, interactive exercises with no technical knowledge,
* create more complicated exercises including images, sound and video files,
* put your exercises on the Internet.

We would like this workshop to be as "hands on" as possible. Therefore, we ask those of you who have laptops to install Hot Potatoes beforehand and bring them to the session. You can download Hot Potatoes from hotpot.uvic.ca. If you'd like some help doing that, email Laurence at lolwhites@gmail.com or Sab at grimfarmer@yahoo.com.

This workshop is FREE to current TESOL France members or 8 euros to nonmembers. To register, go to http://www.tesol-france.org/hotpotatoes.php .

Looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible there.
