Language teachers everywhere are trying to figure out how to maintain instruction online when meeting face-to-face with our students is no longer possible. We thought this would be a good time to rerun a few of our favorite tech-focused episodes from the last three years. We hope this episode will spark some great ideas for you about how you can effectively and efficiently teach with technology. Stacey also wants listeners to know that she is collecting resource, blog posts, and tools into one place over on her blog. The blog post is called Putting our Language Courses Online: A Resources Round-Up (and a Work in Progress) and is updated regularly with new stuff from around the web.
In episode 103, Maris Hawkins interviews French teacher and SCOLT Teacher of the Year Heidi Trude about tech tools for the language classroom. You’ll want to to take notes and visit the show notes to learn more about all the things you can do with Gimkit, Quizlet, Flipgrid, Google Cardboard and many more!
