Playlists: Increasing Student Achievement through Self-direction Online

Date: Friday - May 01, 2020
Time: 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM
Location: eSeminar

Online via zoom, led by Zachary Hora-Moir
Target Audience: World Language Teachers


This eSeminar was originally scheduled as part of the Global Language Conference at Mohonk Mountain House

As individual language learners, we each have our own, specific needs. Creating units using playlists allows students to focus on areas in their language learning that need the most work, while also requiring students to hone their planning and organization skills. The teacher becomes the curator of material, splitting time between 1-on-1 online conferencing and whole-class online sessions that help the class process and talk through material as a group.  In this session, we’ll talk about the overall approach to using digital playlists, as well as strategies for creating and implementing playlists in your online class.

Zachary Hora-Moir received a Masters in philosophy from Ohio University, and a PhD in French literature from the University of Pittsburgh before transitioning to high school teaching.  He is currently an 11th and 12th grade French teacher at Dwight School in Manhattan where he is completing his 5th year.  Zach enjoys sharing his love of language learning, film, literature, and grammar with his students.
