Next-Gen World Language Learning
World language acquisition is an important component of global competitiveness and competency for today’s students. The latter is necessary for students to thrive in an interconnected world in which college and career readiness increasingly demands cultural fluency and world language fluency. In this webinar, presenter Tom Vander Ark, CEO of Getting Smart, discussed how the growing availability of high-quality online and blended learning resources can empower schools with a new set of tools that can expand student access to world language instruction and improve global competency. He supports the idea that all students should have access to high quality world language learning and provides recommendations for making that possible.
