Last week I realized that we had a hole in our class vocabulary: tech terms necessary for functions associated with distance learning. When we are in class together, we don’t need terms like “mute” and “unmute”, but we certainly do in a remote setting, especially one where we are trying to maintain a high level of comprehensible and comprehended TL use. Since my classes are levels 4 and AP this year, I’m striving to use Spanish for the vast majority of our time together, “saving” English only for when we need it the most.
After input from my Twitter PLN, I’ve made a resource to support students with some high frequency terms. In addition to sharing this with students in class, I’ll add it to our digital tech notebook for their reference. You can get a full size copy here.
Update 8/23: The power of the PLN is strong! Ada Morley (@MmeMORLEY) has made a French edition, which you can access here.
