1.  Kristi Reyes: 

Web 2.0 Tools for Student Oral Projects:  Numerous free and easy-to-use Web 2.0 tools provide opportunities for both instruction of speaking skills and student audio and video projects that are broadcast to a wide audience and allow for online collaboration and feedback.  The panelist will demonstrate how a few sites can be used for teaching oral skills and for project-based learning.

3.  Jeff Magoto: Assessments of oral language should be as engaging and content-rich and as easy to construct as the Web 2.0 tasks that precede them. ANVILL, the Yamada Language Center's free web-based toolbox that I'll be demonstrating, allows teachers to broaden the sequence and scope of their lessons and students to demonstrate their comprehension in a wide variety of ways.

5 min. Q&A

4.  Dennie Hoopingarner: Rich Internet Applications for Language Learning

Online oral language work can take many forms. Directed speaking assignments, prompted oral responses, and student projects involving speaking are some examples. CLEAR's Web 2.0 tools is one option to faciliatate these kinds of activities. I will show examples of activities, demonstrate the web-based work flow, and discuss curricular implications of these new tools.

 Thank you!
