Integrating Technology to   Improve Student Comprehension and Production | The New School - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YopBiQzMc0k   
Release Date2013
The New School
Plot Summary
The   New School presents a conversation on integrating technology to improve   student comprehension as a part of the Master degree program in Teaching   English to Speakers of Other Languages at The New School(http://www.newschool.edu/matesol). Motivating today's tech savvy   students is challenging. Blended learning keeps students engaged in and out   of the classroom by increasing their exposure to the target language.
Classroom   presentation software, online interactive activities, CD-ROMs and Web 2.0   tools help keep students motivated and interested in their ESL classes. Both   comprehension and production skills are strengthened through the various   media. The presenter will consider the benefits of incorporating various   types of teacher and student technology tools in the language learning   experience.
Mary   Louise Baez , M.A. TESOL, is the National Training ESL Specialist for   Cambridge University Press. She holds an M.A. in TESOL from California State   University Fresno, and has taught ESL, trained teachers and managed programs   for over 25 years in the US. and Latin America.
This   event is co-presented by the School of Languages (http://www.newschool.edu/public-engag...) and Cambridge University Press.
