OFLA Technology Integration

DrostDr. Bryan R. Drost, Shaker Heights High School, OFLA Technology Integration Chair

A huge thank you to everyone who attended the two technology integration workshops we had at the end of summer.   I know that all of our presenters had a great time sharing the various tools we use in our classrooms to help promote student acquisition of language.

The Tech Integration Committee has three basic goals this year:

1)    Develop Integrated Performance Assessments (IPA) based on the themes of the Ohio model curriculum supported by technology;

2)    Hold several interactive regional workshops that focus on how technology can be used to support IPAs; and

3)    Update policies and procedures for the OFLA listserv

We are hard at work meeting goal #1. Hopefully, you saw our postings on the OFLA listserv for Beauty and Aesthetics, Contemporary Life, and Personal and Public Identities and are able to use at least a part of it in your classroom. Additional examples aligned to different themes, languages, and levels will be forthcoming, one, approximately every two weeks.  Go to http://www.livebinders.com/play/play?id=1504217 to check these resources out.

Please consider attending our late Fall Regional Technology Workshop on November 15. Registration can be completed via the OFLA Memberlodge.

Lastly, a huge shout-out goes to my fellow listserv moderators: Mr. Bob White and Mrs. Theresa Minick.  Their consistent dedication and behind-the-scenes technical support ensures that the OFLA listserv runs smoothly and that our members receive information in as timely a manner as possible.
