EXPERT CORNER – Part 1
A dialogue with a university teacher with regards digital technology in the classroom.
University Teacher 1 has been teaching Chinese for more than 20 years and has seen all of the changes and development in the industry first-hand.
Using technology is a teaching basic for her. It’s not only a “must-have” skill for all teachers, but integrating it’s use inside the classroom, is also one of the best ways to engage students.
Using technology can help teachers to save time in the classroom for practice, and make lessons more fun. Showing pictures or short video clips also allows teachers to avoid using the student’s mother tongue, with more time for Chinese.
She highly recommends Great Wall Chinese for all your online Chinese language learning needs. Great Wall Chinese, a key project developed and operated by the Office of Chinese Language Council International, is a new Chinese teaching and learning system based on cutting-edge network and multimedia technology.
