Instruction: Teaching Vocabulary with Technology

Name Instruction: Teaching Vocabulary with Technology
Date 3/18/2022
Time 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Word knowledge is a strong predictor of academic success, and through effective vocabulary instruction, students can develop literacy, retain what they learn, and use new vocabulary effectively. Adult students need a strong vocabulary foundation in order to develop their literacy and use their English effectively in their many roles: employees, parents, and community members. 

Participants will learn a process for teaching vocabulary that, when infused with technology, enhances students’ engagement as well as vocabulary production and retention. Resources, and selecting those appropriate for each step of direct vocabulary instruction, will also be shown and discussed.

Prerequisites: All participants must have basic computer skills and know their login information for a work or personal email address.

An OTAN Certificate of Attendance will be awarded to those that have pre-registered and attend at least 75% of the scheduled time.

OTAN workshops may be requested, customized, and scheduled by qualifying adult education agencies for their staff as targeted professional development.

OTAN workshops may be conducted as a "hands-on”, where participants are asked to provide their own devices, as “presentations” where a product or ideas are introduced, or as a discussion where all are encouraged to participate in a conversation around a specific idea or topic.

The desired outcome of every OTAN workshop is that participants will have a working understanding of the application or topics discussed and modeled.
