What the Flip? Transparent Language Unveils New Teacher Authoring Tools for Flipped Language Classrooms at ACTFL Posted by Transparent Language on Nov 20, 2013 in Company News, Events, Language Learning, Trends
Hey, foreign language teachers! We’re hoping to see all of you at ACTFL this year, where we’ll be unveiling some of our newest and best features to date: list and lesson authoring.
What those resources don’t tell you is that flipped learning is not a one-size-fits-all model. Flipping a language class should be done differently than flipping a calculus, chemistry, or history class. That’s why we’ve designed a flipped model specifically for language classrooms: Declaratively Accelerated Blended Learning. To learn more about this flipped language classroom model, download our Declaratively Accelerated Blended Learning Implementation Guide, which includes guidance on how best to flip a language classroom, as well as sample lesson plans to get you started.
Using the new and improved features in Transparent Language Online, teachers can facilitate flipped language classrooms by creating their own vocabulary lists and lessons within the system. Creating your own vocabulary lists in Transparent Language Online is quick and easy, thanks to the built-in authoring tools that empower teachers to create customized learning material in real-time. In most cases, instructors can create a vocabulary list in 10 minutes or less, including text, audio, and images.
