EDU 951 Tech in World Language Studies
This course helps teachers integrate technology into the World Language classroom. Technology strategies will be presented that spark relevant and engaging activity ideas, with emphasis on using technology to enhance activities that help students improve ACTFL proficiency levels. Technology-based assessment options will also be explored.
Students will engage in conversations and activities aimed to help them experience tech tools, assess their currently accessibility to technology, explore how new tools might be used in their classroom, and connect their practices with other World Language teachers. The final project of this course is for students to use something they’ve learned during the course in their classroom and share that experience with the other students.
*Participants in this course will have a mandatory, synchronous, video conference session. Information regarding this session can be found on the course registration page.
