    K-12 foreign language literacy and technology

    Thursday, April 28th, 2011 | Angelika

    Den Letzten beißen die Hunde… Here is what I’m interested in.

    In the current economic climate, many K-12 foreign language programs are cut and the situation in Michigan is particularly dire. Part of the mission of the Community Language School at Michigan State University is to provide support to students and teachers in the community and to bridge existing gaps in language offerings.

    I am particularly interested in engaging in conversations about the crossroads of literacy and technology for K-12 students and the role foreign languages can play. We have experimented with a few online models and I would like to hear from others who have used online tools to advance literacy for young learners.
