Center for Advanced Research on Language Acquisition
Using Technology in Second Language Teaching

Technology is constantly changing and it is a challenge to keep abreast of all the new and exciting ways to use it in the classroom meaningfully. Participants in this online institute will work together to develop their personal learning networks (PLN) and create lesson activities that not only use technology, but target the three communication modes described in the National Standards (interpretive, interpersonal, presentational). In this five-week course, participants will discover ways to use online tools to promote student language comprehension and production by motivating their participation and collaboration in the target language. Participants will discuss how online activities can change what happens in the classroom with flipped classroom ideas.
