"Learning to speak another's language means taking one's place in the human community.  It means reaching out to others across cultural and linguistic boundaries.  Language is far more than a system to be explained.  It is our most important link to the world around us.  Language is culture in motion.  It is people interacting with people.” -Savignon (1983)

Effective learning is an inherently social and highly-connected process, and nowhere is that more evident than the language classroom. Technology can provide us with a powerful vehicle for connecting us and our understandings across languages. Used creatively, it can allow for significant choice and certainly amplify our individual voices. The goal of this hands-on workshop is to explore technology that will enhance your classroom learning community.  We will actively explore tools and strategies that can be used to engage and support students within a language-learning context.  This workshop is appropriate for teachers of all ages as all activities can be differentiated to work across different grade bands. As this is a hands-on, practical workshop, participants must bring a laptop or tablet that can connect to the internet."
