The graphic to the left, and the title sake of this post is pronounced “impromptu.” For those of you not used to text speak…the IM sounds like M, :\> represents the old DOS prompt (giving us M Prompt) and the last sound is 2 (two) which could represent second try, second session, or speaking with another person. Unfortunately, as a result of an accident, one of the speakers for SSTESOL 2014 was unable to present. Because I love the idea of impromptu speaking and sharing of technologies. I volunteered and we invited others to bring their devices and share some great TESOL teaching technologies. If you came, thanks for coming, I hope you enjoyed yourself. If you are just happening upon this page. Feel free to learn with us. This page is the outsourced memory of our collaborative IM:\>2 presentation.
Here is the Prezi I used if you are interested.
