Published on

Two regional education centers will share technology-mediated models used to provide equal access to Chinese programs. Southern Oregon ESD will share an interactive video conferencing model and will outline steps to starting a similar program. Video examples from K–5 classes and Chinese culture experiences used to enhance instruction will be featured. WSWHE BOCES will share a hybrid
model used to support a K–12 extracurricular program — including curriculum and asynchronous
activities — that offers a similar level of instruction to traditional programs. The curriculum model and asynchronous activities will be introduced. Participants will be encouraged to increase access to
Chinese language programs by using powerful technology tools.
