Using Learning Technologies to Enrich Language Teaching and Learning

Date & Time:
February 13, 2018 | 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
CHD 420
Anna Pletnyova and Mike Webster

Note: there are two dates for this workshop: January 26 & February 13, 2018 (i.e. the same workshop will be be offered on 2 dates). Please plan to attend one day or the other.

As technology is becoming more and more accessible and user-friendly,
language educators can greatly enhance their teaching by taking advantage of new technological possibilities, which will enable them to engage large groups of students, increase each student’s personal motivation and create lifelike situations in which language will be used. The aim of this workshop is to present various learning technologies that could be used in a language classroom. The topics to be addressed include:

  • Platforms for engaging large audiences such as Top Hat
  • Application of virtual worlds to second-language teaching (OpenSim)
  • Creation of educational videos

This event is free.  Everyone is invited to attend.
