Emerging Technologies for Online Learning Symposium

Greetings from the ET4OL Symposium in Dallas, Texas! We are learning exciting things about engaging students in online and face-to-face classes.

Some apps for professors and students alike:
Screen Chomp
Zoho Projects

In the “Women in EdTech” session, a virtual panelist, Prof. Maha Bali from the American University in Cairo, mentioned her “personal learning network.”  Mine are NOVA students and colleagues, professional organizations such as FLAVA, ACTFL and Merlot and former classmates. Where/who is your learning network?


Dr. Joseph Windham Student Voices Conference

Patrick Hamm and Marcy Delos, former Spanish 202 honors option students, participated in the Dr. Joseph Windham Student Voices Conference last night. They shared their fascinating research, which they originally had presented in Spanish to their classmates last semester, on “A History of Mexican Migration to the United States” and “Heightening Risks of Crossing the U.S.-Mexico Border.” Congratulations on a job very well done! ¡Enhorabuena!
