Abstract

Technology has played a progressively larger role in the field of world language education. There are many reasons for this lag, but one of the most significant is the opportunity for pre- and in-service teachers to learn about, engage in, and implement hands-on projects in a supportive learning environment, and then to incorporate this newly learned technology into their daily and weekly lesson plans. This paper describes how participation in a PT3 grant initiative provided time and resources for a professor of world languages, and a K-12 mentor teacher from a local school division, to work together over three semesters to brainstorm, research, create and then implement their ideas into a university methods course for teaching world languages in the PK-12 classroom. It includes a discussion of a follow-up research study conducted with the teachers who participated in the model course.
