Join us in a remembrance and celebration of the life and legacy of Vance Stevens, who passed away last year. One of the founders of the CALL-IS, Webheads in Action, and Learning2Gether, Vance made a profound impact on teachers around the world who use technology.
We will have a live event in the Electronic Village at the TESOL Convention in Portland on Friday, March 24, at 12:30pm Pacific time. With special permission from TESOL, we will also have an opportunity for others to join us via Zoom at https://us02web.zoom.us/j/87356978323?pwd=dlJzTGhyZHNaOG5vcngvbjVxUTl1dz09.
