The UW System Collaborative Language Program Presents
Anytime Anywhere Learning: Using 21st Century Skills to Engage Langauge Learners
Lauren Rosen, Director UW System Collaborative Language
Jeremy Wildenberg, UW Green Bay, Arabic
274 Van Hise Hall, UW-Madison
Friday, August 23
Join us for a full day focusing on technologies that foster 21st Century Skills for today's language learners. Students today are always connected. They regularly communicate, collaborate, problem solve, create, innovate... all using a variety of technologies. We'll look at opportunities to engage students' technology savvy to demonstrate their communicative competence. Our emphasis will be on media rich collaborative work both asynchronously and synchronously, and the incorporation of mobile technology. We will look at technology integration through the lens of how students can communicate, collaborate and build community both in and outside the walls of the classroom.
Participants will work hands-on with mobile devices, participate in activities as they would have their students do, and then have some time to reflect on this experience and how they might integrate it into their own language courses.
Participants are encouraged to bring their own mobile devices if available. We will also have a class set of iPads available to use.
Bring headset/earbuds or some sort of listening device. The lab we are using no long has headsets. A headset with a mic is also helpful but not required as the laptops do offer a built-in mic. USB as well as regular headphone min jack (like what plugs into an iPod/mp3 player) is available.
CLP instructors & facilitators: free of charge. Please make your own hotel reservations and save receipts for reimbursement.
All other UW Attendees: $50 Fees include workshop materials, continental breakfast and lunch on Friday.
Parking is available on a first come first serve basis in Lots 17, 20, and 80 are the closest.
(CLP instructors, save parking receipt for TER reimbursement.)
Lot 20 is located off of University Ave. between Charter St. and Henry Mall. This lot does typically fill up so it is recommended to arrive early. Lot 17 is located off of Engineering Dr. tucked in between the engineering buildings. This has the most spaces available. Lot 80 is the underground garage for Union South off of Dayton St. UW Parking map. Lauren's abbreviated map focusing in on the lots nearest the workshop may also be downloaded. Lauren's Map
You may also pre-order parking permits but the lots are much farther away. Plan a 15-20min walk from parking to Van Hise or take the campus bus. If planning to take the campus bus, request schedule information when ordering permit. Campus bus routes are free.

Go Mobile! Engaging World Language Learners Anytime Anywhere
Whether it's a class set of iPads or using students' own smart phones, in this session we will take a look at a number of mobile options your students have at their fingertips. We will be using free and inexpensive apps for students to participate in polls, create digital stories, and practice the target langauge both inside and outside of the classroom walls. Some of these activities will be collaborative in nature and be prepared to step outside of the walls of our own workshop to participate as your students would in a similar activity.
21st Century Skills and Collaboration in a Mobile World
Moving beyond isolated activities we will take a closer look at the World Languages 21st Century Skills map and begin development of performance tasks that will target a few different areas:
