Technology Integration Modules

Originally started as part of the CoBaLTT Project, the technology modules are now continuing as part of the LT4 Project (Technology Training Targeted for Language Teachers). They are periodically updated and new modules are being added.

There are many technology tutorials online for teachers, and tech instruction is also available to teachers in their schools or districts as hands-on courses or workshops. However, much of the time those workshops and tutorials consist of generic content aimed at teaching "how to's" or the "button-pushing" skills of particular computer tools. What those generic workshops are missing is the "application" piece: in our case, the application of technology specifically for language teaching and learning.

In these technology modules, the focus is on the "why?" and the "what for?" - specifically for using technology for language teaching. If we can entice you into exploring the uses of technology for language learning, we'll give you resources to find out about the button-pushing aspects (if you need them). In these modules, you will find many resources for ideas and support for integrating technology.
