Powering Up Your Chinese and Arabic Language Courses With Technology

Arlington, VA • Arabic, Chinese • June 22, 2009 June 26, 2009
Arlington, VA • Arabic, Chinese • July 6, 2009 July 10, 2009

NOVA STARTALK is a summer institute in its third year designed to help teachers integrate technology tools and 21st century language pedagogy in the Arabic and Chinese curricula. Arabic and Chinese teachers in each language will create a collection of activities to expand the curriculum presently in place. The networking that has resulted from this course in the past two years has enriched instruction and created a bond between teachers who have worked in teams in and out of our STARTALK setting. Major goals: •Faculty participants will apply foreign language standards and multiple intelligence theory while creating Chinese and Arabic materials. •Faculty participants will learn to use technology tools that promote student engagement in Chinese and Arabic classes (i.e. QUIA, MERLOT, wikis, blogs, video, SlideShare, asynchronous voice tools, Photo Story, Nings, netvibes, social bookmarking, etc.). •Faculty participants will create a personal toolkit of materials to be used in Arabic and Chinese courses and shared with colleagues in the target languages. •Faculty participants will integrate activities that they discover in the daily workshops in syllabi for Arabic and Chinese courses during the summer of 2009 and beyond.

NOVASTARTALK 2010: Teaching with Technology

Arabic, Chinese, Hindi, Persian, Swahili, Turkish, Urdu • June 21, 2010 June 25, 2010Residential Program
  • NOVASTARTALK, Arlington, VA

NOVASTARTALK is a professional development Summer Institute in its fourth year, designed to help teachers of critical languages integrate technology tools and 21st century language pedagogy in their teaching. It is a premise of this program that in order to keep learners engaged, teachers must include the most effective, standards-based activities, emphasizing all modes of communication and culture. NOVASTARTALK workshop participants in each language will create a collection of activities to support the language curriculum presently in place at their institutions. The networking that will result from the course will enrich instruction, promote ongoing collaboration and save teachers the task of “reinventing the wheel” by creating materials in isolation. Teachers will make reusable target language materials including wikis, blogs and authentic materials using presentation, video and audio tools. There are two one-week workshops, a beginner and an advanced session. Provisions can be made for hybrid or fully face-to-face participation, but all must produce projects. Some support for travel expenses is available for participants who travel from more than two hours away from the Northern Virginia site. This support will be available on a first-come first-served basis while it lasts.Teachers must produce a final project to receive participant stipend.

The webinars will be extremely interactive with active breakout rooms and standards-based interpersonal activities. Part of the intent of this format is precisely to model best practices in webinars for language learning. The core curriculum will be presented in synchronous webinars with asynchronous online support on the NOVASTARTALK website (novastartalk.nvcc.edu) Online fora and participant projects will also be shared on the NOVASTARTALK website.
