#20 Implementing Technology into a Foreign Language Classroom
Thursday, June 30, 2016
8am-Noon
Romeoville campus

Recent developments in the field of instructional technology have created a vast array of applications and tools. The number of options, however, often becomes overwhelming to teachers who simply have no time to research and test every tool. A ready list of what works and what doesn’t would help make a classroom more attractive without spending hours exploring. This seminar will explore what tools are familiar to the participants, introduce new and effective tools specifically for language instruction and specific examples will be shown. Participants will be able to test the newly-introduced tools right on the spot.
