Teaching language with technology: Basic tools and techniques

Technology can help teachers engage language students and develop 21st century skills, for example, through classroom language exchanges via the internet. Technology can also help teachers assess students' progress, keep them motivated toward learning goals, and provide students with timely feedback--without burdening teachers with extra grading. In this workshop, you will learn about tools for accomplishing these purposes, such as language exchange apps, in-class response systems, language games, and CLEAR's Rich Internet Applications. You will also have the opportunity to work with these tools hands-on to develop assessments and activities for your classroom. No tech skills? No problem! You will work with an experienced teacher-trainer who can walk you through the basics.
