Using Technology in Second Language Teaching

July 13–17, 2015

Target Audience: K–16 foreign language and ESL teachers, curriculum coordinators, teacher educators, and language lab staff. Participants are expected to have advanced English skills.

Using technology to foster students’ motivation and ability to communicate in the target language is at the heart of this summer institute. The three communication modes described in the National Standards (interpretive, interpersonal, presentational) provide an excellent framework for the implementation of technology in the foreign language curriculum. During the week, participants will learn ways of using technology to promote all three modes of communication.

A wide variety of technology tools and techniques will be explored through demonstration and in-class activities. Hands-on practice will allow participants to try out tools as “students.” Participating language teachers will be asked to bring a unit from their own curriculum for immediate application of the tools and principles presented. Through small- and large-group discussions, participants will examine best practices for incorporating technology into the curriculum and assessing student performance. A large online collection of resources will give teachers other directions to investigate once they are comfortable with some basic applications.
