Technology Tools in the LOTE Classroom - April 7th, 2017

In this workshop, participants will learn how to use various tech tools in a proficiency based classroom. Explore Shadow Puppet, Google Voice, Animoto and Edmodo for presentational tasks. Learn how to use tools such as Today's Meet, Poll Everywhere and Quizlet in a unique way for interpersonal tasks. Get ideas on how to use popular websites such as EDpuzzle, Kahoot, Socrative and Nearpod for the interpretive mode while saving you time on assessing this skill. Not only will participants get ideas on how to incorporate these useful tools, but will also have time to learn how to use many of these themselves so they can implement them immediately into their lessons
