STARTALK 2017 in comparisons to our previous programs, will put greater emphasis on the use of mobile technology in education. Our outcomes will be: (1) the creation of innovative learning materials based on contemporary methodology, such as serial lectures for students of Russian based 21st Century curriculum topics; (2) use of technological tools and mobile devices, such as iPads and tablets, in a learner-centered classroom and for distance learning; (3) the creation of technology-mediated Learning Objects to be added to our virtual library of Learning Objects. We plan to accept 16 participants who are teachers of Russian at K-16 level this year with 120 instructional hours. The duration of program will be 5 weeks.
