Leave it to Noemi Rodriguez to organize another grand event for World Language teachers, called World Language Technology Institute. (She also was a key organizer and driving force behind last year's first ever @edcampWL.) The World Language Technology Institute is described as "A week dedicated to empowering World Language educators to create a variety of technology-based activities and assessments for immediate implementation."
The World Language Technology Institute takes place on August 22 through August 25, 2016, at Pascack Hills High School in Montvale, NJ. There is a long list of seasoned presenters that are excited to share their knowledge and success on what they are using with their students in their world language classroom. The sessions are divided into three levels of technology experience/comfort (beginners, intermediate, and advanced), for both elementary and secondary teachers, even beyond to college level. Each day is assigned one of the 3 modes of communication, Interpretive, Interpersonal, & Presentational, with the last day's focus on IPAs.
