About the Course:

Do you explore the full potential of technology in your world language classroom? The educational technology landscape is overwhelming. New tools, new ideas, and new approaches become available every day but there is only so much time. This course proposes a straightforward approach to technology integration in the world language classroom, grounded in the ACTFL standards, the can-do statements and 21st-century skills and themes. We will explore the following themes: the SAMR Model; the 1:1 classroom; using authentic web-based resources; Developing Intercultural Competence; Digital Storytelling; Social Media; Technology & Assessment.  

Each week, you will explore the theme at hand through readings and online discussions; learn the technology tools relevant to this theme and draft a lesson plan or brainstorm an activity. For example, during the week on Digital Storytelling, you will read and discuss an article, look at examples, learn how to use Adobe Spark and design a simple lesson plan.
