How Technology Can Motivate F.L. Students
Edna Feldman-Schultz will present some of the activities she has created or adapted for Grade 7 and Grade 8 students learning Spanish. She will offer tips on how to integrate different programs into your curriculum, as well as how to incorporate technology and Spanish into other subjects taught in middle school. Programs used include PowerPoint, Inspiration, HyperStudio, Microsoft Word, and Grade Book. Edna loves teaching middle school children. One of the reasons that she tries to incorporate technology into her daily teaching is to give students a more holistic learning experience. Technology is something that comes naturally to young people, so Edna uses this fact to her and her students' advantage. This is a great way to motivate learning, acquire knowledge, and have fun!
Edna Feldman-Schultz was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and grew up in Israel. She came to the USA in 1982. She taught Hebrew at Beloit College and currently teaches Spanish at Franklin Middle School in Janesville. She is the Director of "Franklin Café, the school's Human Relations Club.
