Introducing the TALL (Technology-Assisted Language Learning) Project

The TALL (Technology-Assisted Language Learning) project provides an innovative, interdisciplinary program integrating instructional technology and second language learning for both pre-service and in-service teachers of English Language Learners. The program centers on intensive in-class and onsite training sequences in technologies use that is grounded in extensive classroom research. Successful pre-service participants receive a Master of Science degree in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) with New York State Certification in TESOL and in-service participants receive University credits.

The project is sponsored by the Department of Educational Theory and Practice at the University at Albany and the Office of Bilingual Education and Minority Language Affairs at the U.S. Department of Education. The program, based on a systematic training network carefully planned over the past two years with Upstate New York school districts (Albany, Amsterdam, Schenectady, and Troy), the New York State Education Department, and a Project Advisory Council, builds on Albany's long-established tradition of excellence in the preparation of educators of language minority children and particularly emphasizes effective uses of technologies for second language literacy development.
