In October 2013, Getting Smart partnered with Rosetta Stone to release a report called “The Next Generation of World Language Learning.” The goal of the report was to create a vision for world language learning that acknowledged its role in global competency and to frame the vision inside broader shifts to personalized learning and blended instruction. Pointing to the potential of educational technology, we advocated for accessible, high-quality world language instruction for all students—from elementary through high school.
This report focuses on the teacher. “Elevate and Empower: World Language Instructors as Key Players in the Shift to Competency Based, Blended Learning” explores two key questions:
- Are world language educators uniquely poised to act as leaders in system-wide shifts to new models of personalized learning?
- How can world language educators be elevated and empowered to lead this charge?
