Will Robots Teach your Children, graphic from the 1961 issue of Popular Mechanics.Will computers replace language teachers and language programs?
The fear of replacement is not new nor entirely unfounded given recent reports of language programs being replaced with prepackaged commercial language learning products. This course will challenge you to examine the shifting roles of the language educator in the technology-enhanced classroom. Through discussions and hands-on activities, you will explore ways to use technology as a tool to design effective, engaging yet rigorous learning experiences for your language students.
