MAALLT-Events

Here are some upcoming and recent MAALLT events. Please be sure to follow us on social media or come back to our site for updates on our events.

Thank you to those who attended and presented at the MAALLT Tech Slam!

Our first Tech Slam! took place on April 21, 2022. A “tech slam” is like a poetry slam, but with each presenter speaking about a technology, app, solution, or technology-supported practice for language learning for 5 minutes.

MAALLT members will receive access to the recordings for the Tech Slam in the coming weeks, so be sure to check your email or this site. Not a member yet? You can fill out the brief form indicating your interest in becoming a member on our Join page.
