World Languages Update

How is media used for teaching and learning in our classrooms?

I was recently reviewing the World Languages ETAP data (Technology Survey) with Brian Yearling. It is a lot of data, but we took a look at media use specifically, and discussed how students annotate text.

Many of you incorporate a variety of technology tools fluidly with your students. It is ingrained in your planning, your teaching and an enhancement to students' learning experiences. Part of my role is to help build capacity and support instructional technology and how it enhances, when appropriate, the learning environment. I also share how teachers on our team are using some reliable tools, and some new ones, as I observe learning across the district in your classes.

Let me know if you'd like some one-on-one time to explore and learn about options if educational technology is an area you're working on improving.

There's still time to get started and get caught up on the Blended IPA course on Bb9 "Implementing Integrated Performance Assessment"

Even if you don't want to take it for credit, you can still participate by auditing for your 9 new SDW credits. One module per month is doable and the discussion posts are coming alive!

Great professional learning to do with your school PLC team and join your WL district colleagues!
