On March 27, 2014, EMC Publishing and the LT Media Lab hosted a special event in Boston at the Northeast Conference on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (NECTFL) 2014 conference for more than 50 K-12 world language educators, superintendents, and department heads from the northeastern US.
At this event, EMC and the LT Media Lab showcased Flipgrid, Avenue, and the design of a new world languages environment, EMC Languages, that seamlessly integrates both Flipgrid discussions and Avenue e-assessment tasks.
EMC Languages represents the future of fluency in face-to-face, hybrid, and online learning. EMC Languages (available worldwide in fall 2014) builds upon and extends research-based language learning platforms created by the LT Media Lab by leveraging EMC Publishing's world language instructional content in an easy-to-use environment designed to drive educator effectiveness and student fluency. Students will discover languages and cultures, expand their knowledge beyond the textbook and written test, and perform what they’ve learned within a portfolio-style environment to achieve lasting proficiency.
Thanks to all who joined us for this special evening. It was a fantastic night!
NECTFL serves educators in all languages, at all levels from kindergarten through university, in both public and private settings. The annual conference includes a wide range of outstanding professional development opportunities and the sustaining experience of a true learning community.
