Kelly Arispe, professor in the Department of World Languages and principal investigator for a Digital Humanities Advancement Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, presented at the Open Education Global Conference in Nantes, France at the end of May. Her presentation titled, “Partnering Higher Education and K-12 Institutions in OER: A Sustainable Model for Engaging K-12 Teachers in OER-Enabled Pedagogy,” showcased the Pathways Project model for strategic K-16 community engagement.
Also, the Language Flagship Hackathon invited Arispe to present virtually to twenty-nine students from 13 different flagship programs to collaborate in teams to design mobile experiences that integrated mobile affordances and language learning objectives.
The hackathon featured Arispe’s presentation, “Mobile Learning for Advanced Proficiency” at the beginning of the hackathon to help students understand the affordances mobile tools offer to advanced language learners. The presentation included examples of apps designed around the ideas of second language development and mobile assisted language learning theory and practice.
