We’re so glad you’re here!
DIESOL stands for Digital Integration in English as a Second or Other Language, and is meant to be a fun and forward-thinking play on our field, most commonly known as TESOL.
Of course, DIESOL is the fuel that keeps our engines running, and your hosts, Ixchell Reyes and Brent Warner, have long been advocates for bringing teachers “up to speed” through technology and thoughtful, pedagogically sound approaches to the modern English Language classroom.
Whether you’re new to the field of ESL, or you’ve been at it longer than it’s had a name, we hope to bring you some fun and insightful ways to think of EdTech in ESL.
We are by no means experts, just enthusiasts, and we’d love to hear from you, too! If you’re a teacher who is integrating technology into their ESL class, reach out and let us know what you’re doing. If you’re a student who found a useful tool studied a fun way in your teacher’s class, share it with us! We’d love to keep pushing great ideas forward.
The DIESOL Podcast will be released on the first Monday of the month, so make sure to subscribe early so it always shows up.
We hope that you’ll join us on our journey – there’s a lot to explore!
