TALL Summer Institute
A special complement to the TALL Summer Institute is the
use of a new Model Digital Language Learning Classroom at the University
at Albany's Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL).
This facility is comprised of fluid, flexible workgroups and the
projection and manipulation of digitized media and integrated telecommunications.
Specially designed institute activities feature participants viewing,
manipulating, annotating, recording, and discussing digitally recorded
audio and video of exemplary practices. Training will also include
a "voices from the field" component whereby computer-using
ESOL teachers from the field who work closely with the University
discuss their craft with participants;
participate in fieldwork partnerships with
institute participants who will work alongside them in their classrooms
to implement technologies-based literacy activities.
