By Louise Walker, Training Specialist at Rosetta Stone
So far in 2017 our team has trained over 4,500 people. As one of six Training Specialists on the team, I spend my days helping school administrators create successful language-learning environments for their students.
At the upcoming Rosetta Stone K-12 User Conference in Nashville on November 15-16, I will conduct two workshops. You will learn how Rosetta Stone addresses various and often challenging learner needs reflecting different language backgrounds, proficiencies, and objectives.
Tickets are limited and registration is free, so take just a moment to register now. Join industry experts and fellow educators at the Hilton Nashville Downtown just prior to the ACTFL Conference.
Administrators are using Rosetta Stone® programs in various ways—from introducing K-2 learners to a world language to assisting adult learners as they increase their English proficiency to complete their GEDs. Every classroom has unique requirements and what works for one won’t necessarily work for another.
The first workshop: What does a World Language Class Look Like with Rosetta Stone, is directed towards educators supporting World Language Learners. This 50-minute session will walk through how Rosetta Stone technology and classroom instruction can combine their respective strengths to benefit World Language Learners, including how:
- Rosetta Stone Foundations develops language, language usage, and language-learning skills
- Classroom instruction then focuses on language structure and communication skills
- Successful schools use our program in standalone and blended classroom environments, and as a supplemental World Language resource.
When you attend this conference you’ll gather solid insight into how our EdTech solution fits today’s World Language classroom, from the capabilities of the program to the supplemental materials offered.
The second workshop: Using Rosetta Stone Offline Materials in the EL Classroom, is directed towards educators supporting English Language Learners. This 50-minute workshop will review how Rosetta Stone Foundations Supplemental Education Materials (SEMs) provide teachers with a library of resources to support a higher degree of classroom integration, including how:
- SEMs enable administrators and teachers to fully integrate online language learning into everyday classrooms
- Supplemental materials are most beneficial for EL learners of different ages and ability levels
- These resources contribute to a learning experience that challenges EL learners across all levels of proficiency to accelerate their English Language Learner success.
Not currently using Rosetta Stone® in your schools, but interested in learning how we can support your language program? Administrators and teachers are invited to register for Day One sessions on November 15th that will also include our welcome reception in the evening. Mingle with K-12 users, hear from interesting speakers, and meet Rosetta Stone staff focused on language success.
