Additional Information

We are looking for someone who is interested in technology and has a natural curiosity to explore the tools used for language teaching. Experience learning a language or teaching ESL or foreign language is a definite benefit. We need someone who can create short (1-2 page) explainer sheets in clear language and lay them out in an engaging "marketing" style designed to educate and encourage teachers to try the materials. You will need to create your own accounts to try the free software tools or trial versions. You must have your own graphics and layout software (e.g., Photoshop and/or InDesign); we will not be able to provide software to you.
