Technology Assisted Teaching Techniques. Resource Handbook Number 5.
The handbook presents a variety of second language teaching techniques, some old and some new, for use with technological equipment. Each chapter focuses on a specific piece of equipment or technology, or in some cases, two technologies that share some characteristics and can be used similarly. Each chapter begins with a brief description of the technology, its attributes and capabilities, and some general suggestions for use. Then three to five techniques designed to exploit that technology's characteristics are offered. For each technique, these are specified: title; purpose; materials needed; step-by-step procedure; variations; notes; and references and materials suggestions. Margin notes indicate which language skill(s) (listening, speaking, reading, writing) the technique emphasizes. The technologies included in the guide are: brown paper; overhead projector; opaque projector; slide projector; camera; filmstrip projector; 16mm and videocassette recorder; video camera; audiocassette tape recorder; music cassettes; language laboratory; telephone usage trainer; and microcomputer. Lists of sources for equipment and further information are appended. (MSE)
