  • July 27, 2015August 7, 2015: Program segment (face-to-face)
  • MSU Detroit Center, Detroit, MI

Integrating technology in the Arabic learner-centered classroom is the main focus of the WMU STARTALK 2015 program. The program is aimed to develop participants’ teaching strategies and skills in integrating technology into Arabic instruction and assessment. The program outcomes include: implementing thematic and standards-based curriculum using effective teaching strategies and using the target language for instruction and all classroom interactions. Also developing strategies for integrating the latest technology into Arabic instruction. As well as using technology to assess students’ progress by creating ongoing performance assessment tools and strategies as a means to readjust lessons and to check constantly for understanding. Increasing students’ motivation for Arabic language learning and through the use of technology. Creating a learning environment that is learner-centered and students are proactive and aware of their learning growth and demonstrating their increasing skills over time. We are hopeful to serve K-12 twenty-two teachers of Arabic in the state of Michigan. The program will start July 27 and ends August 7, 2015. Teachers will attend daily from 9:00 am to 4:00 p.m., a total of 70 instructional hours that includes daily micro-teaching sessions.
