Episode 28: Emerging LT Tech with Dr. Greg Kessler

As today’s educator knows, Learning technology doesn’t stand still. In the past 25 years we’ve seen the Internet, and social media transform daily life and we are all experiencing the downstream effects on adult education.

As demonstrated by his work on the TESOL Technology Standards, Dr. Greg Kessler is keenly aware of technology’s impact on language education.

Through his teaching at Ohio University, Greg oversees the research of many post graduate students who are challenging the boundaries of what’s possible and exploring new ways to put technology to work in language training.

In this podcast, Greg tells us why information technology matters so much to language educators.

He describes some of the ways technology impacts language training today, and he gives us a glimpse of emerging technologies that are moving from campus laboratories and becoming available to TESL educators and learners.
