Technology may be my passion, but I am a linguist at heart and foreign language education is a wonderful medium for integrating technology in the classroom. The aim of this page is to provide resources and ideas on how to integrate technology in the foreign language classroom and give ideas on how to utilize an iPod touch lab in order to enhance education.
Foreign language news sites are a wonderful resource for current affairs. Play a short video as a warm up and ask students to write a sentence or paragraph about the content, ask students to read a short article to read, have them discuss it in a small group and then present it to the class. Compare and contrast a foreign news site with a U.S. news site, discuss how they report on current affairs, try and establish how culture may affect news reports.
