Turn on language learning for students 
by using technology they already have  


WEBINAR DESCRIPTION: This webinar will begin with the premise that language teachers should not require students to turn off, put away, or set their devices to "airplane mode” in the classroom. We will discover ways to show students how to use technological devices in class that will then allow and encourage them to extend their curiosity for learning languages outside the classroom and into their everyday lives. Insights, activity samples, and rubrics will be shared for showing students how to use their current technologies, apps, and programs to engage with languages.






Jeff Longwell is the Coordinator for first and second-year Spanish courses and Graduate Director for the MA in Spanish programs at New Mexico State University. He also works with study abroad and intensive language group programs at NMSU and has led groups to Argentina, Uruguay, and numerous groups to Costa Rica. He has been developing and using computer-based technology for teaching Spanish since 1995. He has contributed, and continues to contribute ancillary technology material content for numerous textbooks and other learning platforms. Currently, he teaches courses on integrating technology in language instruction, teaching reading and culture with technology, and assessing the national standards with technology. Prof. Longwell’s academic interests include finding ways to continually engage students in being an active part of their own learning process, applications of technology in language learning, and online education.
