News & Recent Events
INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON LITERACY, CULTURE, AND LANGUAGE EDUCATION
The third annual ICLCLE at Indiana University in October was a huge success. Partners traveled from all over to participate in discussions on past language projects and how leaders in language can move forward. Speakers shared anecdotes about everything from working with Elders in the community to reaching youth through technology and apps. Overall our partners shared their joy in collaborating on this type of work despite the callenges they may face. We want to thank everyone who came out to our office in Bloomington, Indiana. It was a joy to meet everyone and spend such an amazing weekend in the beautiful fall weather. We are looking forward to more events like this in the future.
