The University of Colorado's Program for Teaching East Asia will host a STARTALK program for 20 Chinese language teachers working in middle and high school settings around the US. This blended program will provide teachers with a thorough understanding of and practical experience with implementing effective learning technologies appropriate for the secondary Chinese language classroom. Based on the premise that the sustainability of both a program and its teachers increasingly depends on the teachers possessing skills and behaviors of a digital-age professional, this STARTALK program will introduce the theory, standards, frameworks, knowledge, and practice necessary for incorporating into the curriculum, with comfort and ease, a range of learner-centered technology tools. Program participants will work with language technology specialists, experienced Chinese language curriculum designers, and master teachers to gain a clear understanding of and competency in a variety of technologies around which they can create effective and engaging lessons. The program will consist of asynchronous online learning in mid-June, a residential institute in late June, and asynchronous online time in early July to complete a technology portfolio.
