WL Department Awarded $3,000 AEF Grant

The World Language Department was recently awarded $3,000 by the Arlington Education Foundation (AEF) for the purchase of I-Pod Touches. These wifi-enabled devices will allow teachers to do additional speaking and listening practice in class, create videos, and get instant responses from students through polling/assessment sites. A core group of teachers will begin testing the I-Pods with their classes and developing lesson plans, which they will share with other department members. If this pilot program is successful, the WL Department plans to apply for an extension grant in the 2012-2013 school year.
