Participants in this course will be introduced to a digital learning philosophy focused on desired student outcomes and based on the belief that instructional technology should be used as a transformative tool to maximize learning, and not simply to replicate traditional assignments and lessons. In addition to breaking down the walls of the classroom, digital learning tools can encourage student creation over consumption, provide students with more personalized learning experiences, allow for differentiated learning, and facilitate all three modes of communication. Each week, participants will discuss pedagogical strategies and consider novel approaches made possible or enhanced by a collection of apps, websites or other uses of educational technology. There will be a heavy emphasis on trying these strategies in the language classroom and reflecting on that experience. All assignments will be aligned to the ACTFL World-Readiness Standards for Learning Languages. (Open to teachers of any language grades 5-12. Conducted in English)
