    Foreign Language Education with Technology. MLA Project

    Illuminating the possibilities for enhancing foreign language pedagogies through multimedia technologies, the paper suggests an ideal scenario for the use of electronic laboratories. As envisioned, such language centers will play a central role in enhancing the teaching, research, and service programs of foreign language departments. This applies in particular to providing user friendly and student centered learning resources, including audio tapes, videos, satellite television, networked software, Internet, electronic entertainment, and portable classroom tools. Functioning as a digital resource, reference, and research center for teachers and students, and student teachers in particular, the laboratories can streamline advising, assessing, proficiency testing, technology training, electronic bulletin boards, and more. The suggested exemplary action agenda involves the new centers like pedagogical hubs with digital spokes supporting all departmental programs from language to literature, and from culture to comparative studies.
