Using Virtual Backgrounds to Enhance Input and Interaction - Justin Slocum Bailey (Sane Saturday)
Justin Slocum Bailey has helped people of all ages learn Latin, Spanish, and German, both in person and online. A veteran language, music, and martial arts instructor raised in Vienna, Austria, he trains teachers and designs programs for schools, districts, universities, publishers, and non-profits worldwide, with characteristic kindness, humor, and outside-the-box thinking. Justin has taught Latin to adults in Spain and Mexico and presented in both countries on research-informed language teaching methods. He has published several articles on language pedagogy and contributed to commercial materials for both modern and classical languages, but especially enjoys supporting eager Latinists through endeavors such as the Latin Listening Project, the Quomodo Dicitur? podcast, and LIMEN: an online Latin teaching portal. Justin lives in Ann Arbor, Michigan, where he thrives on Tigers baseball, jujutsu, and fingerstyle guitar.
