"Professional development modules for foreign language instruction at the high-school and college levels."
Orlando Kelm of the University of Texas presents a four-lesson module for foreign language teaching training on technology in the FL classroom. The four lessons involve:
1 Time on Task
Presents how technology can aid in the learning of foreign languages by providing learners with increased time on task.
Explores how the effective use of technology has the potential of creating a context for language learning situations.
3 Chunks and Scripts
Demonstrates how technology can play a role in providing learners with the "chunks" and "scripts" that people use in actual speech.
4 Input vs. Intake
Discusses how technology can provide learners with increased exposure to a foreign language, but more importantly, it can also serve to increase a learner's conscious awareness of what is heard.
