Pilot is coming!
We are currently working with select schools and community stakeholders to design a platform that supports teaching and learning Greek in Community / Church schools and Charter schools. The platform is being designed to function as a complementary learning resource, which can be used in a variety of ways, depending on classroom conditions, students’ educational needs and teachers’ teaching style.
Our goal is to give the communities the tools they need to learn their heritage language, whatever their skill level or age. Our approach will involve the creation of a suite of applications for web and mobile devices to meet the different needs of each group. The software will combine the principles of self-regulated learning theory and the whole-task method of language learning.
This approach provides students with a highly individualized and customizable learning experience, that meets their needs and adapts to the strengths and weaknesses of each individual learner. Learning analytics will also be made available to teachers and parents to track progress, both to celebrate successes and to anticipate challenges. More detailed information can be found here.
