I saw many nationalities and ethnic groups of students at lunchtime around the quad and at King David’s. Well, here’s the presentation I’ll be making with Mike at 5:30 pm today.
>> P.S. 8/15/08: If anyone is unable to view it on their pc, like on my tablet pc yesterday, you probably have to download the Java add-on from this site: http://java.com/en/
To any Fulbright Foreign Language TA who may be accessing this page – hello!
I didn’t manage to clarify why I picked some of the tools for yesterday’s presentation, but here’s a brief analysis of the ‘student’ audience yesterday and why we did the presentation the way we did:
Internationals – jetlag, tired, dinner time (hungry)
TAs of foreign languages
Unsure of technology literacy (how IT savvy are they?)
New to USA
Teaching diverse students/net generation
Assisting faculty with use of courses
Link 105 hall
Transfer learning experiences
Present some options
Audio visual aids
Mike’s & Yin’s Tablet PCs & software applications on them
We hope you have a great time in USA. Enjoy and let us know if we can be of any assistance.
