2.2 – The Power of the Image: A Web Conference with Laura Terrill

The Learning Tools TELL domain (Links to an external site.) provides us an opportunity to explore how we can use a variety of learning tools to advance our students’ learning. Specifically, our focus is on comprehensible input strategies in online learning environments.   

In today’s live, one-hour web conference in Adobe Connect, we are fortunate to learn more about comprehensible input strategies from Laura Terrill, co-author of the ACTFL Keys to Planning for Learning: Effective Curriculum, Unit and Lesson Design and content specialist for the National Foreign Language Center at the University of Maryland. Laura will help us better understand how we can use visuals to address the Communication Standard of the World-Readiness Standards for Language Learning.
