TESOL Classroom of the Future

Classroom technologies and design are constantly evolving, and because ESOL teachers work under a variety of circumstances in different parts of the world, they know, perhaps better than most, how valuable certain tools and strategies can be.

With so many ever-changing factors, it’s easy for ESOL teachers to wonder what resources will be available to them in the future to ensure success.

What will a standard classroom look like 5, 10, or even 20 years from now? What sort of devices or technology will teachers and students use? What will effective instructional strategies look like in the context of the future?

Classroom of the Future is an interactive hands-on showcase focusing on technology, design, and pedagogy.

The TESOL Classroom of the Future is located in the English Language Expo. There will be ongoing presentations throughout the convention. The schedule is below.
