Yongin-Gyeonggi Chapter Virtual Welcome Table and Symposium
Join us as we discuss the opening keynote and happenings up through Monday afternoon. What sessions did you attend? What ideas, questions, and wonders do you have? What is your plan for the remainder of the conference? More to the point, this is a “socially professional” space for us to have guided conversations about camps during the breaks (adjusting to levels), podcasting, digital citizenship/literacy, and tech tips.
***** Welcome Table Poetic Catalyst
Drop by, say “hi," ask why / share the word you heard from Gerd / make a rhyme, spend some time / sip some tea, virtually / make a friend, ‘cause in the end / this table is set altogether to get / us all together, and you can bet / this conference will be / so much better with you, here with me.

What started out as an idea within the chapter has allowed for a lot of good discussions, interaction, and considerations. This general topic can go in any number of directions. The main goal is to share ideas while explaining the challenges and successes so far.
* 7:50-9:00 p.m. Kids on Zoom: What Worked; What Didn’t (Martin Todd, Bien Gruber, David Berry)
Due to the COVID pandemic, the regular storm of English camps was not held offline in the summer of 2020; but Yonsei University hosted a Zoom English camp, which they re-hosted again in the winter, as some other camps either returned offline or began using Zoom. The presenters will talk about the unique set of issues they encountered as they landed on the front line of the collapsed (offline) Mapo-Yonsei English Camp and re-imagined it on the fly as a remote educational adventure: what they tried; what worked; what didn’t.
* 9:00-9:30 p.m. Tech Tips Sharing/Writing (David Kim)
Digital citizenship has three major themes and nine principles. This brief session will be introducing these as a way to connect with one another. It may be a bit odd and a somewhat different way to approach a topic, but in the end, the goal is to be professionally social and gain an awareness of one's digital footprint.
