Summer 2006 Institute: Chinese Language & Culture: Technology to Create Effective Learning Activities

May 26, 2006 Chinese Language & Culture: Technology to Create Effective Learning Activities at George Washington University by Phyllis Zhang Assistant Professor.

This institute starts with a demo of sample lessons (e.g. cultural slideshows, language exercises and games) made with PowerPoint (PPT), Flash, QuickTime Pro, DreamWeaver, and other audio/video tools. It then introduces basic techniques for preparing images, audio and video clips, and creating animated PPT slideshows and interactive web-based exercises.

I wonder if she will use a Tablet PC or other mobile PCs. Teachers should probably plan to take their own mobile PCs in order to store their work for future use preparing Chinese class presentations.

Let us know what you learn at the institute.
