A linkhyperlink, linkAn object that takes you to a different website Center for Language Education and Research CLEARFederally funded language resource center

3 Where is my handout? We have some flyers available However, CLEAR has been working hard to create digital documentation o

4 What is a RIA? Rich Internet Application They are FREE to use Can be used in most course management sites (D2L, Moodle, Edmodo, Wordpres) Currently 12 different web applications No content, just functionality o You create the content

5 What is a RIA? (cont.) Pedagogically motivated Benefits o Allow shy/quiet students to talk more o Give students more chances to practice speaking o Can help ease stress in the classroom

6 What do I need to use the RIAs? A CLEAR account (free to sign up for) Basic computer knowledge o copy/paste o drop and drag o Identifying online elements (embed code, URL)

7 What will we talk about today? Audio Dropbox - online audio recorder Video Dropbox - online video recorder Conversations - simulated conversation Mashups - simple web page creator

8 Problem Your students are not getting enough verbal practice o 50 minutes divided between 20 students = 2.5 minutes of talk time per student You have one student who talks too much or one student who talks too little You are teaching a speaking class and want your students to practice speaking at home

9 One solution Use web-based tools that allow students to practice: o whenever o wherever o at their own pace

10 Audio DropBox This tool allows you to embed an audio recorder into your website Students recordings automatically get sent back to your Audio Dropbox account

11 Audio Dropbox: what the students see Start recording Upload recording Delete recording Recording time Recording Playback Stop button Recording indicator

18 Problem My students need to practice for the AP exam, OPI, or a class speaking test My students have no idea how to interact with people from X I dont get to have many one-to-one conversations with my students

19 Our solution Use a static tool that simulates conversations o **CLEARs Conversations o CeLTA has practice OPI tests in Spanish, German, and French

20 Conversations Similar to an Audio/Video Dropbox o embed it into your website When students start app o they see a prerecorded question o respond immediately to it o repeat until all questions are finished
