About the Foundation Course (LGTC 5020)

This course will challenge you to examine the shifting roles of the language educator in the technology-enhanced classroom. Through discussions, readings, lesson planning and a research project, you will learn to leverage technology to engage and motivate students to learn the target language. We'll discuss the SAMR model; we'll practice building lesson plans around tools such as Flipgrid; we'll discuss differentiation and ADA compliance as well as copyrights laws. 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. If you are pursuing the certificate, this course is required and only offered once a year, in the summer.
