Want to harness the latest technology and online resources for your classes? Looking for vetted resources that smoothly integrate with your teaching goals and approaches? Tired of technology workshops that have nothing to do with Latin? Wishing you could learn about these things in a calm, clear, low-stress environment?
In this workshop, we'll explore innovative new methods for using technology, software, and online resources for: Latin instruction; Latin practice and review activities; and assessment in the Latin classroom.
Teachers will gain ideas that are specific to Latin and can be implemented in the classroom immediately. Each participant will sit at his/her own computer station.
The presentation style is enthusiastic and supportive, with plenty of opportunity for hands-on interaction by participants, group discussion, and analysis.
