Presenter: Emilie Talpin with Dick House, UNH
In this Webinar, we will present the use of an iPad as an instructional aid both in and outside the language classroom. If one reads articles about using iPads as a teaching tool, one finds numerous authors focusing on the benefits of iPads for students.  This presentation will be slanted towards how the iPad can be used as a teaching tool by the instructor, as opposed to a learning tool by students, although we will provide observations on the learning results that accrue.
Presenters Biography:
Emilie Talpin is a Lecturer in French at the University of New Hampshire. She earned a Masters in English from L'Université de Bourgogne, in Dijon and an MA in French from Miami University, Ohio.  She has presented at NERALLT (Fall 2013).  Her teaching experience includes all levels of language courses and a literature class (readings in French literature).  Her research interests include the inverted classroom, as well as the use of the technology in the language classroom generally.  She is currently using iBook Author to develop a manual for a review of French course which she will be teaching in the Fall of 2014.  In addition, she is leading a series of workshops on the Instructor’s use of iPads in the classroom under the sponsorship of the UNH Language Resource Center.
 Dick House has degrees in Slavic, French and General linguistics from the University of Washington and Cornell.  His first brush with technology was working on a 3 person team which successfully used computing to represent the rhyme schemes of the Russian Poet Alexander Pushkin.  After teaching at the secondary and college level for more than 15 years he accepted a position as head of a Language Learning Center at Wabash College in Indiana.  He has held a similar position at the University of New Hampshire since 2002, also teaching Russian Language and Literature, and sometimes doing sessions in French or Russian introducing students to the LRC’s technology.  His current interest is in the use of video (film and otherwise) as both an object of study and as a token of the speech and culture of a language in the classroom.
