5 thoughts on “Kelly Reports from ACTFL Day 2”

  1. Bryce and I got the giggles going around to the different sessions. It just seemed so funny.
    The main idea I wanted to say, reflecting what Kelly said, was that it almost seemed like the tech session presenters (there were 1000 sessions this year) were working for the the book/tech companies in the main exhibitors hall, in spite of this from this link:
    http://www.actfl.org/i4a/pages/index.cfm?pageid=4368#tech
    “The use of technology should never be the goal in and of itself, but rather one tool for helping language learners to use the target language in culturally appropriate ways to accomplish authentic tasks. Further, all language learning opportunities whether provided through technology or in a traditional classroom setting, should be standards-based and help develop students’ proficiency in the target language through interactive, meaningful, and cognitively engaging learning experiences, facilitated by a qualified language teacher.
    “Therefore, ACTFL strongly advises school and university administrators to place the responsibility for language instruction in the hands of qualified language teachers rather than solely in technology programs. Cost-cutting measures such as replacing teachers with software or online programs for language learning or launching new language programs using language software or other technologies will disadvantage language learners if learners will have significantly fewer opportunities to develop language proficiency under the necessary conditions of a dynamic environment and interaction with and guidance from a qualified language teacher.”

  2. I added Carol’s and Kristy’s website links in the column on the bottom right here. Any other sites devoted to comprehension based instruction/Krashen/TPRS etc. just send them and I will add them to the list.
