Students use websites and computer programs with specific tasks set by the teacher, and with outcomes and accountability understood by the students
- With a tutor or a peer helper to encourage and guide
- With instruction from the teacher, then on their own
Examples: specific grammar or vocabulary work; home language information about a class topic; readings with audio, like "Just Grandma and Me" and "Arthur's Teacher Trouble"
Teacher or assistant will find sites and programs that fit the curriculum and weave those into class tasks
Examples: Students create their own websites to share; students work with keypals on projects; students create exercises for other students to work on; teachers use extra information, including sound and video clips, from web pages or CD-ROMs
Set of tasks performed over time to meet a curricular goal, either for individuals or for groups of students - a syllabus is key
Examples: word-processing and keypals for writing; grammar programs like Focus on Grammar; vocabulary programs; speed reading and other reading programs
