Friday, March 25 11:30 AM-12:30 PM
A teacher preparation program supports the integration of innovative technologies and pedagogies in language learning. A panel consisting of two graduate students and a program head presents three novel programs. One program features the use of online gaming, among other technologies, in the learning of Latin. A second program uses puppetry to support student learning of ESL. A third program, supported by a federal grant, leverages rich pedagogies and a range of technologies to support student learning of Hindi and Urdu. Three panelists will present an overview of each of these programs, followed by audience Q & A.
