The Adult Education and Family Literacy Special Interest Group
(AEFL-SIG) is currently accepting proposals for the International
Reading Association (IRA) Annual Convention (West) that will be held in
Phoenix, Arizona February 21-25, 2009.

The Adult Education and Family Literacy Special Interest Group
(AEFL-SIG) panel presentations provide a forum for sharing information
about specific areas of interest among reading and literacy

For 2009, the panel will focus on the use of Web 2.0 technologies in
Adult Education, Family Literacy and ESOL programs and how they are
being utilized.

Web 2.0 refers to the second generation of the Web. This includes
Web-based communities and hosted services such as social-networking
sites, wikis, blogging, and tagging, just to name a few. These
technologies are aimed at facilitating creativity, collaboration and
sharing between users.

Being a part of the AEFL-SIG panel presentation is a great opportunity

* Share your knowledge & experience with national and
international colleagues
* Interact and engage in critical dialogue and discussions as it
relates to your pedagogy
* Network with other Adult Education, Family Literacy and/or
English Speakers of Other Languages practitioners

Based on pass experience, the panel presentation is around 1 hour and 15
minutes. This gives each panel member 20 minutes to share. Q&A is
usually reserved for the end of the presentation. The call for proposal
deadline is Friday, February 8, 2008 (3:00 p.m. E.S.T). If are you
interested, please complete the online form located at
