2012 L2 Tech Day: Call for Papers
Kutztown University's Language Resource Center, in conjunction with the Pennsylvania State Modern Language Association (PSMLA), will be hosting a L2 Tech Day on April 14, 2012 for K-16 language educators.
The Theme of our L2 Tech Day is "Communication in Communities." The focus is on the use of technology for developing the interpersonal, presentation and interpretive skills for communicating in the many language communities: the classroom, the school community, the broader community and geographically-separated communities (other schools, other communities both in the U.S. and abroad). Communication may be oral or written, synchronous or asynchronous. The key though is a lesson or series of lessons, which connects students to others.
We are inviting proposals from educators to showcase technology that they use with their students for these purposes. Each session will be approximately an hour, and should include 1-2 sample lesson plans, a description of the communicative challenge, the presentation of a tool(s) and a walk-through of how to use the tool(s). Participants should be given some time to briefly try the tool during the session, but they will also be given time later in the day to create a lesson plan of their own using the tool.
