David J. Rosen, Ed.D will describe English language learning circles in public libraries and ESL/ESOL programs and focus on a new kind of learning circle whose focus is helping adult English language learners to use their smartphones for English language learning. “App to Speed” learning circles use free or low-cost online apps designed for low-literacy adult English language learners who may be on waiting lists for classes, or who may want to supplement their classroom English language instruction with online learning in language learning sprints in the times they have available during their busy workdays, evenings and weekends. The webinar is for adult ESL/ESOL teachers and program managers who want to understand what learning circles are and do, how they can learn more about them, and specifically how they can organize learning circles that will help English language learners, whether currently enrolled in classes or not, to use their smartphones to improve their English. Following David's presentation there will an opportunity for questions and comments.
