Corredor, Eva L.
Mid-Atlantic Journal of Foreign Language Pedagogy, v1 p155-166 Spr 1993
The purpose of this study is to demonstrate how technology, enhanced by the experience and supportive presence of the teacher, can be used toward teaching French civilization within its context. Information is being provided on the philosophical inspiration, and the format, textbooks, basic hardware, software, special programs, services, and materials recommended for French civilization courses. The focus of this paper is on organizational strategies, topical files, timing for maximum input, pre- and post-viewing or listening treatment of materials. A few examples give details on the use of technology in the teaching of specific topics. The conclusion contains a list of benefits, limitations, and recommendations with regard to such technology-aided cultural teaching/learning projects. (Author)
