Language World 2024 #LW2024


"Language World" by Pixlr AI Image Generator 

Yesterday I returned from ALL's annual conference, Language World, which this year was held in Kenilworth in Warwickshire.  That's a good four-hour drive from here in the north-east, but it's always worth it for the content and for seeing old friends and meeting new ones.  I only attended one of the two days this year due to a family birthday, but of course it was worth it.

Here are the sketchnotes that I made from some of the sessions that I went to.  I'm afraid the scanning has gone a bit wonky with some of them!  I spoke about Dictation, and will post about that separately.

By the way, if you are wondering about the image at the top of this post, inspired by the theme of AI at Language World, I asked the Pixlr AI Image Generator to create a "Language World" image.  As you can see, it needs work!
