Getting ready for our panel at HASTAC 2014

This Saturday at 10:00am, my fellow Vanderbilt HASTAC scholars and I will lead a panel at HASTAC 2014. Our panel, titled "Teaching Digitally, Thinking Critically: Digital Pedagogy and the Humanities Classroom," contains reflections on our experiences with digital resources as teachers. Vivian Finch will present ""Adventures in #twitterfiction: Student Generated Digital Storytelling and the Foreign Language Classroom." Danielle Picard will present "Digital History: Scaffolding History Skills with a Digital Database." Brad Daugherty will present "Expecting Digital Natives?: Lessons for Undergraduate Teaching." My talk, "Fostering Global Awareness through Google Earth: Examples in Spanish and Portuguese," will explain how we've used Google Earth in language courses at Vanderbilt. I will briefly describe our program, providing a model for those who might wish to undertake a similar project, and then point out the benefits of such an approach to language learning and to humanities instruction in general.

We hope to see you at our panel!
