Digital Demosthenes: New Pedagogy for Old Languages (ACL workshop)

Today I had the distinct pleasure of giving my first ACL workshop: "Digital Demosthenes: New Pedagogy for Old Languages". My presider was Justin Schwamm who spent about thirty minutes talking about SMART Boards and SMART Airliners. My discussion on tech in the Classics classroom took a catholic approach (pun intended) on evaluating new and… Continue

ACL, Day 2: Still Wired after all these Years

I spoke with about a dozen people today on "digital pedagogy" and learned that it is alive and well, but mostly in the form of data projectors and SMART Boards. One delegate says she uses "everything" when it comes to technology in the classroom, while others complain that it's a money thing when trying to acquire hardware. Money is indeed a huge issue when it comes to schools and districts applying for technology in the classroom, but perhaps the biggest issue is the standardization and… Continue

ACL Nashville: More wired that a pedal steel guitar

Things were so busy at ACL yesterday that it's only been now that I have found the time to blog on eClassics about what's been happening here. As a colleague said to me once, "sleep is a conspiracy". I wanted to take the temperature of high school and college Latin/Greek teachers and how they are currently using technology and spoke to dozens of people (including several eClassics members) about it. And the news is good!



Many, many people are using overhead data projectors in their… Continue

Digital Paleography as Pedagogical Tool for Latin/Greek

One of Dr. Jayni Reinhard's (University of Wisconsin - Parkside) favorite language-learning activities as a grad student at the University of Minnesota was reading Greek off of high-quality images of papyrus fragments. A group project introduced students to paleography and served as a much-needed and welcome reminder that the texts from ancient authors were not as neat and tidy as students might sometimes think. Poems were… Continue
