Mimi Melkonian, Brunswick School, Greenwich, United States
Teachers have responded globally to the challenges of the COVID 19 pandemic, but now is the time for us to reassess our pedagogical priorities. In this presentation, successes and challenges in teaching and learning Arabic in the independent High School setting in the U.S.A. with alternative delivery methods will be shared and discussed -- addressing students’ learning and social and emotional well-being by adopting new technology for interacting and working. Examples of students’ work will be shared using Sutori, virtual reality, Vlogs, Piktochart, Google Earth, and Blogs in the target language. In conclusion, schools must migrate to flexible teaching and learning platforms, re-evaluate the curriculum, capacitate the faculty, provide innovative and resilient tools and solutions in times of crisis, and adopt new technology to maintain continuity in teaching and learning.
