2020-2021 FLDH Webinar Series: Making Digital Humanities Tools Part of a World Language Class.
In this panel the presenters are professors and a student who worked together to integrate two digital tools, the Social Book and ArcGis Story Maps, in two foreign language classes. Because of the increasing interest in Digital Humanities and the way this approach disseminates knowledge in an effortless way while it connects language learners inside and outside the classroom, the professors incorporated into course assignments these two digital tools. Their objective was to engage students in reading discussions inside and outside the classroom, motivate them to conduct research and present their findings in an interactive way and after all use the target language in a meaningful yet productive way.

There will be two presentations, one from the professors and one from a student. The professors will explain the importance of language learning with the use of digital tools and share their practical approach in the classroom. The student will share their experience working with digital tools for the first time and will walk us through their projects.
