With the advent of ICTs, we are increasingly exposed to information in the target language and start operating in different contexts and situations in our personal and professional life, which are no longer limited to our geographical location, classes, occasional workshops or professional development programs. We can acquire and learn much of the language online. The use of social media tools and platforms on the open Web can accelerate the learning process by giving us access to information, communities of practice and networks and by enabling us to create and participate at our own time, in our own space and with whom we choose to communicate and collaborate.

During the first part of this full- day PCI, we met our international guests and "opened the space" around the issues and opportunities participants saw as essential. We also examined and discussed how this digital immersion challenges us, EFL teachers, to review, expand and modify our ways of teaching and learning.

The second part was devoted to a number of short presentations and workshops.
