Using Technology 
in Second Language Teaching

July 17–21, 2017

Technology Institute Instructors

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 World Readiness Standards (interpretive, interpersonal, presentational) provide an excellent framework for the implementation of technology in second language teaching.

A wide variety of technology tools and techniques will be explored through demonstration and in-class activities. Through hands-on practice from both the student and teacher viewpoints, and 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 a wide array of additional options and tools to investigate. Participants will be asked to bring a unit from their own curriculum to use as the basis for activity creation.
