Blogs, and Chat, and Tweets, Oh My! Using Social Media in FL Instruction

Saturday, September 28, 2013 -
05:00 to 10:00
CLA 1.302B, Glickman Conference Center, UT-Austin

with Thomas J. Garza, Department of Slavic and Eurasian Studies; Min Jung Jee, Department of Asian Studies; and Vincent Vanderheijden, Department of Germanic Studies
Our students are on social media more than 20 hours a week. By tapping into that time and having students use Facebook, Twitter, Live Journal, and other sites in the foreign language, both students and teachers benefit from increased contact hours. This workshop will demonstrate some successful uses of social media in UT language classes.
