We’re launching a blog for discussion on the role of technology and pedagogy in changing how people learn languages. And we also wanted to provide an opportunity for you to get to know us better and for us to get to know you.
Our intention is not to have a blog just for the sake of being current – no technology for technology’s sake, we like to say. This is about opening up the conversation and providing a focused forum for debate on new ideas and practices in the field of language learning. Clearly, there is lots of soul searching going on out there about tech-enabled language learning – what’s lacking is the participation of leading practitioners and a framework for the debate. We hope to change that.
Meanwhile, although we’ve been thinking about language-learning issues for some time already, I think we’re humble enough to realize that there are opinions out there that we’re not getting. We need a broader discussion.
What we know is this: The world is still searching for better ways to learn languages. And although we’ve already done a lot to drive innovation in language training, there continues to be room for improvement. Our industry needs fresh thinking and debate.
Use this blog as a resource and check back frequently as Rosetta Stone employees will be posting regularly. I hope you enjoy our company blog and thanks for reading.
