Abstract

In an effort to make my students’ learning experience productive and fun I have been constantly been trying to integrate new approaches to teaching that would lead to more engagement and better results. Selecting from available technological tools can help enhance the delivery of the material in the classroom, and can help to encourage students prepare, study, interact and express themselves with more creativity. As a language instructor I have the students and their achievement in mind as my main goal. I strive to assign projects that allow students to be creative and imaginative and go beyond the material in the textbook.

In my presentation I will share about using Voice-Thread for various assignments as well as how I grew to use Moodle more effectively and to the students’ satisfaction.

Voice-Thread and Students’ progress and proficiency: Voice Thread is a very useful tool that one could employ to the class and the students’ advantage. I have been trying various ways of making the best use of it. I used Voice Thread in 2014- 2015 and again this year to better results. I will share several assignments that would work effectively in a language classroom. (I might also include the students’ feedback, if I manage to do a survey by semester end.)

Moodle: Moodle can be a very useful tool, and at the service of the professor and the students. I rely on Moodle as a means of communication with the students. I added the Journal Feature this semester to encourage the students to write more. I also use the grade book and the attendance feature (at Haverford.)
