The International Association for Language Learning Technology is a professional organization devoted to the advancement, integration, evaluation, and management of instructional technology for the teaching and learning of language, literature and culture.  This conference will be of particular interest to all language and culture instructors whether K-12 or post-secondary, to individuals affiliated with a media center or language lab, to developers of language technology, and to individuals interested in any facet of language learning technology. The biennial IALLT conference attracts participants world-wide and offers an international perspective into the future of educational technology for language and cultural learning.


The theme for the 2013 conference, “Sunshine and Cloud Apps: The Next Generation in Language Learning Technology,” reflects both the atmosphere of Florida, “The Sunshine State”, as well as a glance into the future with the wide use of “Apps” that are already making their mark with the next generation of language users in global social networks and seamless, mobile technologies.  The hosts of the conference, Pine Crest School and Florida Atlantic University, are culturally diverse campuses which pride themselves in second-language acquisition.  As the first K-12 host school in IALLT history, we are proud to announce that Yo Azama, 2012 ACTFL Teacher of the Year, will be our Keynote Speaker.
