The Computer Assisted Language Learning Outreach Project for Education.
Chung, Ulric; And Others
The Computer Assisted Language Learning Outreach Project for Education (CALLIOPE) was established in 1985 to enhance foreign language instruction in Illinois elementary and secondary schools through inservice teacher education in the form of short workshops, intensive summer institutes, and an internship program. The specific approach is to encourage and facilitate the use of computer technology by foreign language teachers. A description of the program outlines its purpose and approach, inservice program elements, a roundtable conference used for information dissemination, and a brief critical analysis of the program and future directions. Appended materials include a list of workshop dates, locations, staff, and number of attendees from January 1986 through February 1988, a list of topics discussed as part of the summer institute curriculum, a list of 1986 and 1987 summer institute participants and their individual project topics, and a summary of the proceedings of the May 1987 roundtable conference.
