Extending the Foreign Language Classroom with Technology

Using technology to take your teaching - and students' learning - to the next level

  Enroll in Course

Using online tools both specifically designed for foreign language use and those designed for other use, we can extend the reach of the foreign language classroom. This use will help students learn any foreign language both better and faster. At the same time, students will be more engaged as the teaching makes optimal use of the technology and tools they love. Learn how to create fun and meaningful exercises and projects, as well as help students review and internalize vocabulary and grammar. At the same time, make your teaching easier and more efficient by learning how to make the most of these easy-to-use tools, many of which are free or very affordable.

Is this course only for foreign language teachers?
Absolutely not! There are many tools here that other teachers will find useful. While the course focus is on how to use them in teaching foreign languages, any teacher will benefit and need only think about how to make the best use of them in their own discipline.
