Stop teaching vocab—let tech do it for you! Posted by Bridgette on Jul 14, 2021 in For Educators
Every second counts in the language classroom. ⏳
Language teachers must juggle engaging and authentic classroom activities that promote speaking, writing, reading, listening, grammar, and beyond—all through a new cultural lens for students. 🤹♀️
Don’t waste another minute reading aloud endless lists of new vocabulary, asking your students to fill it in along the way while parroting the words back to you. We hope that these new words start to ‘sink in’ (but we know they don’t.)
Less time memorizing words in the classroom = more time for fun + authentic classroom work. 🎉
Flip your language classroom and let tech teach vocab for you. 🔄 💻
Tech makes it easy to provide interactive vocab lessons to your students at home. They can listen, type, and practice pronouncing the words and phrases at their own pace before class.
Algorithms behind the scenes even automatically differentiate each student’s experience. 😲 Reporting allows you to keep track of your student’s progress and see if the assigned work is completed.
Bonus: no more trips to the photocopier. Students will always have access to their vocabulary with audio, practicing their listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills along the way.
Then comes the really fun part: targeted use of that vocab with real-world tasks in the classroom.
