WL Team Presents at the Mass Computer Using Educators Conference
A team of World Language teachers -- WL Director Catherine Ritz, AHS Spanish teacher Christina Toro, OMS Mandarin teacher Na Lu-Hogan, and former OMS Spanish teacher Alexa Finck -- presented a session on making digital global connections at a technology conference yesterday. The Massachusetts Computer Using Educators (C.U.E.) annual conference brings in educators from across disciplines looking for ways to better incorporate technology into their teaching. The WL team's session, "Go Global: Making Digital Connections," focused on ways that we have used technology resources such as Skype, WeChat, and WhatsApp to help our students connect with native speakers from places like El Salvador, Colombia, and China.
