What to expect
This is a fast-paced event that includes three phases. If you are not already, you will become acquainted with interactive technologies that have gained ground in language instruction in the last few years, such as H5P, Twine, etc. Then you will use those technologies to design an interactive learning experience. And finally, you will have an opportunity to reflect on the experience, share with us your thoughts on implementation, and receive feedback. Click on each phase below to learn more:
BOOT CAMP: TIME TO EXPLORE
The first three days you will participate in a Boot Camp that provides a deep dive into interactive technologies such as H5P, Twine, VoiceThread and Class2Class. If you have already used these tools, we have you covered! You will get an opportunity to share your knowledge with other colleagues guided by Tech Center faculty. During the Boot Camp, you will not only learn how to use the tools, but also discover their affordances. Then you will put all together by designing tasks that engage learners in interactions with authentic materials, other learners in and outside the classroom, and local and virtual communities.
Hackathon: time to innovate
reflection: tIME TO PONDER AND SHARE
This final phase entails a half-day of Focused Reflection and planning for future project adaptations. You will have an opportunity to imagine the implementation of your or another colleague or team’s idea and share your thoughts with the group. At this time, you will also receive feedback from other colleagues, including Tech Center faculty.
